Ryan strikes collaborative tone in opening talks

FILE - In this Oct. 17, 2013 file photo, House Budget Committee Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., left, accompanied by Senate Budget Committee Chair Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., speaks on Capitol Hill in Washington where they outlined their approach to tackling the nation’s debt problems. To hear Ryan tell it, a bipartisan group of congressional negotiators has the chance to take the first steps toward fixing a serious problem: a debt-ridden federal government facing an onslaught of retiring baby boomers draining entitlement programs.
