Rep. Ryan to vote against U.S. deficit panel plan

WASHINGTON, Dec 2 (BestGrowthStock) – Representative Paul Ryan said
on Thursday he will vote against a presidential commission plan
to reduce the U.S. deficit, saying it does too little to tackle
health care costs and relies too much on tax increases.

In a statement, Ryan announced his intention to vote
against the plan on Friday when the commission that was
established by President Barack Obama holds its final meeting.

He is the second lawmaker on the panel to announce his
opposition. Nine members so far have announced support, and
Ryan’s opposition makes it more difficult for the panel’s
co-chairmen to win the 14 votes on the 18-member panel that
would trigger a quick congressional vote.
