Rep. Paul Ryan: Wisc. Democrats ‘Lack Respect for Rule of Law’

News

"Elections have consequences."

Congressman Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., addressed ongoing protests in Madison and the "Fugitive 14," the 14 state Senate Democrats who fled the state to avoid a vote on Gov. Scott Walker's budge proposal. In the end, the debate boils down to the need for fiscal responsibility, Ryan told a Business Day gathering this week.

"I didn’t like the legislation that was moving through Washington the last two years. I didn’t like cap and trade; I didn’t like ObamaCare; I didn’t like the stimulus. But I didn’t walk out," Paul said. "We stayed and did our jobs, we voted, we tried to amend, we made our debates Elections have consequences. They won, we lost. That’s the way it works. So I just don’t understand this lack of respect for the rule of law.”
