Paul Ryan: The Sequester Is Going To Happen Because The Democrats Have 'No Leadership'
February 17, 2013 | 3:32 PM
Republican House Budget Chair Paul Ryan laid the blame on Democrats Sunday for failing to avoid the sequester, accusing the Senate and the White House of showing "no leadership" on budget issues.
“There’s no leadership on the other side of the aisle and therefore no agreement," Ryan said in an interview with ABC's This Week. “The Senate hasn’t passed a bill to replace the sequester. The president gave a speech showing that he’d like to replace it, but he hasn’t put any details out there. So that is why I conclude I believe it’s going to take place."
