Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) is mighty disappointed with President Obama. The chairman of the House Budget Committee, who has bested Obama in head-to-head policy showdowns, blames the president for failing to outline a solution to the debt crisis while dividing America with talk of class warfare.

Ryan’s speech at Heritage [1] yesterday made news for its strong critique of Obama. He sat down for an interview afterward to outline why he’s so disheartened by Obama. Ryan also redefined how Americans should look at class warfare [2], taking aim at crony capitalism and the politically connected who drive American further into debt.

Despite the monumental challenges facing America, Ryan said he remains an optimist. He’s hopeful the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction will include some of the House-passed budget reforms [3] in its final report.

The interview runs 5 minutes. Hosted by Rob Bluey and produced by Kyle Tuckness with the help of Hannah Sternberg. For more videos from Heritage, subscribe to our YouTube channel [4].
