Paul Ryan talks about Democratic senators fleeing his home state of Wisconsin and America "getting its mojo back":

On the Democratic senators fleeing Wisconsin, Paul Ryan says: "I didn't like the legislation that was moving through Washington the last two years -- I didn't like cap and trade, I didn't like Obamacare, I didn't like the stimulus. But I didn't walk out. We stayed and did our jobs. We voted, we tried to amend, we made our debates....Elections have consequences. They won, we lost. That's the way it works. So I just don't understand this lack of respect for the rule of law."
