Paul Ryan: 'Three Certainties in My Life - Death, Taxes and Bitter Partisan Attacks From Obama'

Congressman Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) responded Tuesday to Barack Obama calling his budget proposal "a radical vision on our country."

Talking to Fox News after the President spoke at the Associated Press's annual luncheon, Ryan said, "I seem to have three certainties in my life - death, taxes and bitter partisan attacks from President Barack Obama" (video follows with transcribed highlights and absolutely no need for additional commentary):

At the beginning of a segment on Fox News's Special Report, a video clip of the President was aired with him telling the AP luncheon, "The Republicans running Congress right now have doubled down and proposed a budget so far to the right it makes the Contract With America look like the New Deal...It is a Trojan horse disguised as deficit reduction plans. It is really an attempt to impose a radical vision on our country."

Ryan responded, "I seem to have three certainties in my life - death, taxes and bitter partisan attacks from President Barack Obama. Unfortunately it's just something we're getting used to because he lacks an agenda to actually fix this country’s problems."
