Paul Ryan Set to Blow Budget Deadline

Hosted by

Congressional gridlock is passing another landmark this week. House Speaker Paul Ryan was faced with questions today about why Friday's deadline to pass a federal budget will not be met. Ryan told reporters, "Our preference is to pass a budget, and we're still talking with our members about how we can do this... We just had two weeks where our members didn't have a chance to get together and discuss things. We're now starting those kinds of conversations now that we're back in town with each other."
