GOP Disarray, House Version: Paul Ryan versus John Boehner on What Constitutes a Budget: Please find below our response to Rep. Paul Ryan saying this morning that the House GOP "budget" released last week was a "marketing document" and that there was a "misimpression given that that was [the GOP] budget alternative":

Rep. Paul Ryan said this morning on MSNBC that the House GOP budget released last week was a only 'marketing document.' Maybe Rep. Ryan should check in with House Republican Leader John Boehner who went to great lengths last week, in front of Rep. Ryan, to say it was a budget - all 19, numberless pages of it. Even if you accept Ryan's description of last week's House GOP 'budget' as simply a 'marketing document,' it was the worst attempt at marketing since New Coke and doesn't give us a lot of hope for the 'budget' they plan to introduce today," says DNC spokesman Hari Sevugan.

You can see Rep. Ryan's comments along with Leader Boehner's comments introducing the GOP "budget" last week HERE. Incidentally, that guy over Rep. Boehner's right shoulder as he's giving what Rep. Ryan says is the "misimpression... that that was [the GOP] budget alternative" - that's Paul Ryan.
