Peter King: Ryan budget is a 'very good blueprint'

Republican House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan unveiled Tuesday a budget that proposes to eliminate the annual deficit by 2023.

Ryan's budget touts less spending, lower tax rates and doing away with Obamacare.

On Wednesday, Democratic Senate Budget Chairman Patty Murray will put out her own 2014 proposal that is expected to contrast sharply with Ryan's. Both budgets proposals are viewed by both sides of the aisle as dead on arrival.

What's in Paul Ryan's budget

Officials from the Obama administration say the president is likely to release his budget in April, two months after the deadline required by law for the president to submit his budget to congress. White House officials cite the battles over the fiscal cliff and sequestration as the reason for the delay.

    As a Republican (not a tea-party advocate) I am generally supportive of Republican budget initiatives, but Paul Ryan needs to move his agenda away from the extreme right.

    1) We need some half-decent government oversight and some federal infrastructure that works.
    2) I'd like the wealthy to start shouldering a fair portion for the country that blessed them.
    3) His budget needs to reduce defense spending. Close the foreign bases. Stop building aircraft carriers.

    If this is his play for 2016, he will not have my support in the primaries.
