Deputy GOP Whip Roskam: Obama Budget Attack Will Backfire

President Barack Obama’s budget speech last week voiced vitriolic criticism of the budget that House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan proposed and the House passed. But Obama’s attack will backfire, benefiting the Republican Party, says Rep. Peter Roskam, R-Ill., the GOP's chief deputy whip in the House, according to The Hill.

"He's kind of entered into this cage match with Paul Ryan, which I think is a bit unusual," Roskam said on WIND radio in Chicago. "It's great for the Republicans. It's great for Paul Ryan. Doesn't it seem like he's talking about Paul Ryan a lot?"

For his part, Ryan declined to fire back at Obama Sunday. "I don't see how productive it would be to get into a partisan bickering match with the president," Ryan said on CBS’ "Face the Nation."
