Paul Ryan Won’t Rule Out 10:1 Cuts-Taxes Ratio For Debt Deal

Appearing Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” Paul Ryan did not rule out a deficit reduction deal with a 10:1 ratio of spending cuts to tax increases.

“You know, it depends on the quality of the agreement. It depends on the quality of the policy,” the Republican vice presidential nominee said. “Our negotiators in the super committee offered higher revenues through tax reform. John Boehner did as well.”

Romney said he’d walk away from such a deal during the Republican primaries, arguing that tax hikes are unacceptable. Ryan didn’t go that far on Sunday.

“There’s no deal to walk away from,” he said. “The point is, you’re not giving me a deal to look at. You’re giving me ratios.”
