Ryan says cuts to Amtrak has nothing to do with crash

WISCONSIN - Last week's deadly amtrak derailment ramped up the debate on Amtrak funding-.

Speaking on CNN's "State of the Union," Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan rejected the notion that Amtrak spending cuts had anything to do with the crash.

"To suggest and insinuate this tragedy could have been avoided or would have been avoided had congress had more spending or had congress had a different budget, it's the wrong suggestion to make and should not be in this conversation," said Ryan.
