Flashback: Bill Clinton Admits Paul Ryan’s Budget Is a Good Plan (Video)

It’s going to be difficult for the Obama Camp to beat up on Paul Ryan’s bold budget plan that would reduce the deficit and save Medicare when Bill Clinton praised him for it last year.

ABC reported:

The day after that loss in New York, ABC’s Jonathan Karl was with Ryan when he encountered none other than Bill Clinton back stage at a forum.

Clinton greeted Ryan warmly and suggested that Ryan “give me a call.”

The former Democratic president warned Ryan that the victory by Democrats could be a recipe for inaction in a Republican-controlled House.

That turned out to be an accurate prediction, but Clinton’s approach to Ryan showed how his embrace of big ideas, if not the ideas themselves, are respected among many Democrats.
