Paul Ryan swipes back at Newt Gingrich over budget plan

Republican Congressman Paul Ryan of Wisconsin took a swipe at 2012 presidential candidate Newt Gingrich, Monday, over comments the former Speaker of the House made on Sunday’s Meet the Press about Ryan’s budget plan.

“With allies like that, who needs the left?” said Ryan on a radio show Monday morning.

On Sunday, Gingrich distanced himself from Ryan’s plan, which has already passed the House, calling the sweeping reforms to Medicare akin to social engineering.

“I don’t think right-wing social engineering is any more desirable than left-wing social engineering,” said Gingrich. “I don’t think imposing radical change from the right or the left is a very good way for a free society to operate.”
