The same deal that Paul Ryan voted for.
Here's Mitt from the interview, airing tomorrow morning:
DAVID GREGORY: Republican leaders agreed to that deal to the extend the debt ceiling.
MITT ROMNEY: And that’s a big mistake. I thought it was a mistake on the part of the White House to propose it. I think it was a mistake for Republicans to go along with it.
“What conservatives like me have been fighting for, for years, are statutory caps on spending, legal caps in law that says government agencies cannot spend over a set amount of money,” Ryan told FOX News’s Sean Hannity shortly after the agreement was reached last August. “And if they breach that amount across the board, sequester comes in to cut that spending, and you can’t turn that off without a super-majority vote. We got that in law.”Trumpeting internal discord at the top of the ticket is probably not the way Republicans hoped their standard bearers would try to counteract Obama's increasingly substantial post-convention bounce.
