Rep. Paul Ryan kept his cards close to the vest on the GOP’s domestic spending plan, but drew a line in the sand Sunday Paul Ryan, Debt Limit, Spending Cuts, Budgeton raising the staggering national debt limit, Politico reports.

Appearing on CBS' “Face the Nation,” Ryan spoke generally about capping domestic spending and “financial controls” that Republicans are seeking “in conjunction with raising the national debt limit.” When pushed for specifics, Ryan said: “We’re not really interested in negotiating with the media.”

When asked what Republicans would do if Democrats didn’t go along with party demands, Ryan would only say: “We shouldn’t just accept the premise that we should just rubber stamp a debt increase.”

Ryan also took issue with President Barack Obama's taunting comments during a recent fundraiser. Ryan said: “I think the tone gets set at the top,” adding that the president needs to show leadership in the budget debate.
