Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI): “When you strip away the budget tricks and accounting tricks, they gave a budget that gave a net spending increase of $1.5 trillion and a tax increas of $1.9 trillion. If you pass the president’s budget, it goes up 76 percent.”

Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD): “[Ryan’s budget is] a one-sided lopsided approach. They want to take it all out on middle-income Americans…They don’t want to ask folks at the very high end to pitch in.”
