Ryan: I Won't Endorse 9-9-9 Plan

Rep. Paul Ryan, who praised GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain’s economic ideas several weeks ago, says the former Godfather Pizza chain CEO’s 9-9-9 tax plan is a good start but would not commit to throwing his full support behind it.

Speaking at a Indiana GOP’s fall dinner Friday, Ryan says he thinks Cain’s tax plan is a big idea that can create more debate about tax reform.

“And hopefully what will come from that are other candidates will answer to his call to bring their plans and I think it’s a great dynamic,” he said in remarks quoted by an Indiana public radio station.

Ryan also said the Tea Party is indispensible to the Republican Party.

“If it weren’t for the Tea Party, I don’t think we’d be anywhere near where we are today in advancing the cause of fiscal conservatism and economic liberty,” he says.

Ryan says, as head of the presidential campaign formation committee for the GOP, he will not be endorsing any Republican candidate in the primaries.
