Paul Ryan Hopes to Find ‘Common Ground’ with Obama

In an interview that aired on CBS’s “60 Minutes” Sunday, newly elected Speaker of the House Paul Ryan said he hopes to lead a House of Representatives that is “functioning again.”

“I think wiping the slate clean was about wiping the slate clean in Congress and getting Congress, the House functioning again,” Ryan said.

However, part of that Ryan said will require finding “common ground” with the Obama White House.

“Look, if we can find common ground, we can on highways, we will on funding the government, hopefully we can on tax policy,” Ryan said. “Those are three things that will produce certainty in this economy in the next few months. Let’s go do that.”

Ryan also vowed that there would be no mass deportation of illegal immigrants while he was serving as House Speaker.
