Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), Mitt Romney's vice presidential candidate, predicted Sunday that sequestration, the $1.2 trillion in automatic cuts to domestic and military spending, will go into effect in March. But, he added, if Mitt Romney had won the election, he would have found an alternative way to cut spending and avoided sequestration.
"If Mitt Romney and I won the election, they would not have happened," Ryan said on NBC's "Meet the Press." "You know why? Because we would have gone and worked with Republicans and Democrats in Congress to actually put the budget on a path to balance, would have saved defense."
