• What do you expect from Friday and what strategy would you use?

    RYAN: Well, our goal was to get spending down to 2008 levels. Now, the 61 we tried to get a year's worth of 2008 level spending, the 33 is 2008 levels for the rest of this year. So, we can debate about whether or not we get to 2008 levels.

    For me, what matters most is we wipe out those two years of Obama spending increases that occurred when Nancy Pelosi ran this place. You got to get rid of those spending increases. Then, it comes down to riders, I want to bank the spending cuts and then I want to go from billions, talking about trillions and get real spending control in this place.

    HANNITY: All right. And you do defund Obamacare in your bill?

    RYAN: We defund and repeal Obamacare.

    HANNITY: All right. Congressman Paul Ryan, we'll be hopefully checking in with you in days, and weeks and months ahead. Thanks for being with us.

    RYAN: Thank you, Sean.
