Paul Ryan Defends Budget Agreement Ahead of Senate Vote

Will avoid another partial government shutdown if implemented


House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan on Sunday defended his compromise budget deal that avoids another potential government shutdown but suggested congressional Republicans will be more demanding of Democrats during the upcoming debit-limit talks.

"We as a caucus—along with our Senate counterparts—are going to meet and discuss what it is we're going to want out of the debt limit," the Wisconsin Republican told "Fox News Sunday." "We don't want nothing out of this debt limit. We're going to decide what it is we're going to accomplish out of this debt-limit fight."
