Palin on Budget: Rep. Paul Ryan Has 'More Faith in Politicians Than I Do'
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is standing firm in her objection to Rep. Paul Ryan's (R-Wis.) budget proposal, which she told Sean Hannity will raise spending over 10 years nearly $1.2 trillion.
"That's trillion with a T, and that stands for trouble. Trouble for our nation because it still is involving deficit spending, increasing debt and we can't afford that," Palin told Hannity.
Hannity told Palin that he'd had Rep. Paul Ryan on his radio show, and Ryan was adamant that Palin would come around to his budget if he could only explain it to her.
"Bless his heart. He probably has more faith in politicians than I do, because I've been in this political arena on the local, state and now national level for a long time," Palin said.
Palin told Hannity that she doesn't trust future legislators to see proposed budget cuts through 10 years into the future.
"Future congressmen and women don't have to obey what today's congressmen and women wish for in terms of budget cuts that may happen in 10 years," Palin said.
Hannity and Palin also discussed her recent appearance on 'The Tonight Show' with Jimmy Fallon, where she took part in a skit mocking Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Earlier, Rep. Paul Ryan went 'On the Record' with Greta Van Susteren to lay out his budget proposal.
