    GOP House blows Ryan budget all to pieces:

    But the repeal vote comes with an awkward complication: It also repeals a central deficit-reduction component of the GOP’s own budget by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), which was released in March with much bravado and projections that it would balance the budget within a decade.

    Ryan’s budget relies on $1.7 trillion in budget savings under the Affordable Care Act — $1 trillion in new tax revenues and $716 billion in Medicare provider cuts — to reach its target of $4.6 trillion in deficit reduction over 10 years. Nearly all Republicans voted for that budget this spring. And all Republicans, including Ryan, voted Thursday to eliminate that central component, without which the budget wouldn’t balance in the 10-year window.
