Gov. Walker praises Rep. Ryan's budget deal


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Governor Scott Walker is praising fellow Wisconsin Republican Paul Ryan for the congressman's role in broking a bipartisan budget bill that's been blasted by a number of conservatives.

Walker said on "Meet the Press" that Ryan provided strong leadership on the bill that passed the House Thursday and awaits Senate action.

In addition, the governor said retaking Republican control of the Senate in 2014 will be the key to getting budgets that more conservatives can embrace.

In a separate appearance on "Meet the Press," Ryan said nobody gets everything they want in a divided government.

Ryan appeared along with Senator Patty Murray, the other chief architect of the deal and Democratic Senator from Washington state.  He said they wanted to find a way to make divided government work, at least at a basic functioning level.
