White House On Ryan’s Budget: Math Doesn’t Add Up

Jay Carney

The White House says the new House Republican budget outlines the wrong course for the nation.

White House spokesman Jay Carney says the math in Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan doesn't add up. Carney says it will either raise taxes on the middle class or fail to reduce to the deficit. The White House is panning the Republican proposal's spending cuts and Medicare reforms that would require future patients to bear more of the cost.

The GOP proposal sticks to Republican plans to try to repeal so-called Obamacare and cut domestic programs ranging from Medicaid to college grants.

Senate Democrats plan to offer a counter-proposal on Wednesday. The White House has not said when Obama will release his budget.
