Erskine Bowles on Paul Ryan
"Have any of you all met Paul Ryan? We should get him to come to the university. I’m telling you this guy is amazing.
I always thought that I was okay with arithmetic, but this guy can run circles around me.
And he is honest, he is straightforward, he is sincere. And the budget that he came forward with is just like Paul Ryan. It is a sensible, straightforward, serious budget and it cut the budget deficit just like we did, by $4 trillion…
The President came out with his own plan and the President as you remember, came out with a budget and I don’t think anybody took that budget very seriously. The Senate voted against it 97 to nothing."
