After Saturday’s GOP debate in Roanoke, Allen answered that question…sort of.
“Congressman Ryan’s approach I think is a worthwhile one,” Allen said, noting three specific similarities to his own “Blueprint for America’s Comeback”: repealing the health care overhaul, simplifying the tax code and offering states greater flexibility in managing Medicaid.
“I commend Congressman Ryan for proposing a budget,” Allen said. “The senate…my goodness, they haven’t passed a budget in three years now.”
Ryan’s $3.53 trillion dollar spending plan has come under fire from Democrats for its proposals to privatize Medicare and shrink Medicaid and food-stamp programs.
