Maryland Rep. Chris Van Hollen, senior Democrat on the House Budget Committee:

"We've had a lot of spirited but civil debates. He is a nice guy. It's just we have sharp disagreements on policy and campaigns are about the direction for the country." He added, "It will sharpen the debate in a way that will help the president. It will demonstrate clearly that we face choices. The Ryan budget is great for people like Mitt Romney. It stinks for the rest of the country. It is an uncompromising, unapologetic reflection of Bush trickle-down economics on steroids.''
