Ryan's Budget Will Include Sequester Cuts

House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan's upcoming budget "is expected to include savings from looming military and discretionary spending cuts worth $85 billion -- the same package of cuts that Republicans have desperate tried to hang around President Obama's neck," BuzzFeed reports.

"According to two senior GOP aides familiar with Ryan's thinking on the budget, the Wisconsin Republican and former vice presidential candidate will use the so-called sequester as part of the baseline level of spending for his budget. Doing so will likely make it significantly easier for him to craft a plan that balances the budget in 10 years, a time frame conservatives within the conference have demanded."
