WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan said on Thursday he believed there would be enough votes in the House to pass a bipartisan budget agreement reached in the Senate.

"I think we will. I feel good. Part of it depends on the Democrats. This is a bipartisan bill. It's going to need bipartisan support," Ryan told radio host Hugh Hewitt. "We are going to deliver our share of support. I feel very good about Republicans who are focused on the military are very happy with where we landed on that."
