Ryan On Social Security Cuts Plan: 'If I Lose My Job Over This, Fine'


He added: "It's really palpable about what's wrong with government. ... People are really worked up. If I lose my job over this, fine. But I want to prevent a fiscal crisis."

More from the Journal Sentinel's write up:

As the ranking member of the House Budget Committee, Ryan says his plan will ensure health and retirement security for all, address the country's rising debt and promote a market-driven competitiveness in the economy.

Ryan said his plan is not the Republican alternative to President Barack Obama's budget plan. Rather, he said, it is a long-term plan to address the country's pressing financial needs.

"This is not a GOP bill. This is my plan," he said.

Late Update: It may not be a Republican plan, but Democrats want to put it to a floor vote.
