Congressman Ryan: President Obama to get authority to direct spending cuts


MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan of Janesville says you should not feel any pain from the $85 billion in automatic federal spending cuts that took effect on Friday.

The Republican Ryan says Congress will give President Obama the authority this week to direct the cuts to, “low priority spending, and the more wasteful programs.”

Ryan told Mike Gousha’s “Upfront” TV show Sunday that Congress will eliminate the across the board budget cutting.

He says the president will have, “the flexibility to make sure that the cuts go after wasteful spending” instead of higher priority items.
