With issues ranging from an investigation into the IRS targeting conservative groups to how a terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya was handled, Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan (R-WI) admits there are plenty of distractions in Washington right now. Still, Ryan says those issues are “not going to simply completely consume us.”
The Republican Janesville says the GOP is capable of “walking and chewing gum at the same time,” and he hopes progress can be made on key issues facing the country. Speaking at a WisPolitics event in Madison Thursday, Ryan said he wants to find a way to make divided government work. He says goals for the current session include a budget agreement, tax reform, energy legislation, and immigration reform.
Ryan also urged President Obama to work with Congress, rather than “just focusing on the 2014 elections.”
