Paul Ryan fundraising off new budget

Ryan later asks for donations of $10 or more for "real solutions to get our country moving" and directs readers to a donation page on weneedabudget.com, a website set up for the group.

It's not unusual for politicians to fundraise off of major initiatives. And while Ryan could use any money raised for a presidential run, he could just as easily use it to help like-minded candidates or on efforts to sell his plan to the public.

Ryan, the 2012 GOP vice presidential nominee, is the focus of speculation over possible future presidential bid, but he said in an interview Sunday he would not think about a 2016 run before addressing deficit-reduction talks.
