HANNITY: So, it doesn't go up - so real dollar spending doesn't go up eight percent next year?
RYAN: I'm talking about discretionary spending. I'm talking about government agency budgets.
RYAN: Medicare, Medicaid, all that autopilot spending, that spending is on autopilot. That's why you have to do entitlement reform. That's what we proposed in our budget. Those things grow because baby boomers are retiring, healthcare inflation is going up. Those things are on auto pilot. Congress doesn't have a control of those spending programs, which is 60 percent of our budget, on any given year. That's why we want to reform those programs, too.
HANNITY: Alright. Paul Ryan, appreciate your time. And I hope you can get to the baseline issue, because for me, that is, if we're going to really cure the problem, and you know these numbers well -- that is -- we've got to deal with that.
RYAN: I agree.
HANNITY: Alright, congressman, good to see you. Thank you.
RYAN: Thanks, Sean. You too.
HANNITY: And coming up, continued coverage of all tonight's breaking news. Now, this bill, now will head to the U.S. Senate for a vote tomorrow at noon. When we come back, Dick Morris is here. We'll ask him what we can expect, and how this deficit debt deal is going to impact the 2012 race. That and much more, straight ahead.
