House Republicans have offered a budget that Senate Democrats find irresponsible. The house plan would keep federal bills paid through the remainder of 2011. No budget plan was put forth by democrats who controlled both the house and senate in 2010. Representative Paul Ryan of Wisconsin  authored legislation that would reduce federal spending, while keeping the government wheels of progress moving forward. Senator Max Baucus says each of us must share the burden.

Senator Baucus explains what he finds offensive about Ryan’s bill.
