“Honored to host @RepPaulRyan at tomorrow’s @Senate_RPC policy lunch. Look forward to hearing about his plan to balance the budget,” Barrasso wrote.

Ryan’s budget would cut spending by $4.6 trillion — or $5.7 trillion compared to the Congressional Budget Office baseline — and create a $7 billion surplus in 2023.
