OP Sen. Susan Collins says she opposes Ryan budget 

Sen. Susan Collins of Maine has become the first Republican Senator to declare opposition to Rep. Paul Ryan's budget proposal, though she gives him credit for taking a stab at tackling the debt crisis.

The Hill reports:

"I don't happen to support Congressman Ryan's plan but at least he had the courage to put forward a plan to significantly reduce the debt," Collins said on "In the Arena" a program on WCSH 6, a local NBC affiliate in Portland, Maine....

"The president has yet to come up with a detailed plan," Collins said. "At least Ryan had the courage to come out with a detailed plan."

Just four House Republicans voted against the Ryan budget.
