Parisi and Lee on Capitol City Sunday

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Paul Ryan's plans for America are a subject of debate on this weekend's edition of Capitol City Sunday.

For Ryan to convince Americans they should vote for him and Mitt Romney, he will have to convince them his budget plan is a good idea.

Dane County Executive Joe Parisi (D) says that will be a tough sell.

"When you look at how he plans on balancing the budget, he does that by giving tax cuts to the very wealthy among us and really extracting the savings in order to pay for those cuts from working people," said Parisi.

But Republican Second District Congressional Candidate Chad Lee disagrees, saying its Democratic plans that have let the country down.

"When I'm walking down main streets and I'm shaking hands with folks in parades or mom and pop shops, in some of the smaller towns or communities, I'm seeing a lot more empty buildings, just even from two years ago," said Lee.

Both guests also weigh in on the U.S. Senate race between Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin (D-Madison) and former Republican Governor Tommy Thompson.

Lee is running to replace Baldwin, and says she is too liberal for the rest of Wisconsin.

"I would say almost 100 percent of the time she votes with Nancy Pelosi," said Lee.  "I don't think that's gonna fare well with folks outside of Madison and outside the second district, so, we'll see."

But Parisi says he believes voters will relate well to Baldwin, and that she is more bi-partisan than people think.

"I think when people from across the state look at Tammy Baldwin, look at her roots, look at her history, both in the state legislature and in Congress, not only the substance of what she's worked on but the manner in which she works with people, I think they're gonna look at her and say 'that's the kind of person I want representing me,'" said Parisi.

Capitol City Sunday airs at 9:00 a.m., right after This Week with George Stephanopoulos.
