Paul Ryan's dramatic budget preview

March 16, 2012: 11:49 AM ET

House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan is expected to release his budget proposal for fiscal year 2013 on Tuesday, a rather highly anticipated event in Washington.

And Ryan is only adding to the tension, releasing a short video in which he is seen stalking down empty hallways and talking about the nation's debt problems.

Plus dramatic music!
