House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., checks notes as he appears before the House Rules Committee to advance his party’s 2014 budget proposal, at the Capitol in Washington, Monday, March 18, 2013. Ryan and fellow House Republicans know their plan would be dead on arrival in the Democrat-controlled Senate because it includes a repeal of President Barack Obama's health care law, and it includes Medicare changes that would shift more of the cost to future patients.
