President Obama and Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) are jockeying for position in this fall’s fight over funding the government.
Ryan, who has vowed that Republicans will pursue a bolder conservative agenda under his leadership, signaled Tuesday he’s unwilling to bend to White House demands that the funding bill be free of conservative riders meant to control government spending.
“This is the legislative branch, and the power of the purse rests within the legislative branch,” Ryan said at his debut press conference. “We fully expect that we are going to exercise that power.”
White House press secretary Josh Earnest countered with a warning that the fight could quickly end Ryan’s honeymoon as Speaker.
