    Ryan is one of the few politicians brave enough to tell us what we 'need' to hear, not what we 'want' to hear.
    The American Spectator : Now That's Leadership!

    ...which is WAY faster and better than the Obama plan.

    read the whole article... this was just the highlights.

    The sound of all those Democratic anal sphincters snapping shut in unison on the Democratic side of the aisle must have sounded like a thunderclap when Ryan produced his budget.
    Just kiddin! Thats reserved for the night of Tuesday, November 6th, when ABC, CBS, CNN, and NBC simultaneously proclaim Obama's Republican opponent the winner.
    "I want my Obama Money!"
    'How are we gonna get our Obamabucks now?"

    While I agree Ryan's plan is superior to that offered by the President, I find it incomprehensible that we would continue to spend more than we take in for another 18 years...until 2040. There are NO cuts in this plan, only slight reductions in the planned rates of increased spending...yet we hear screams of "slashing" the funding to "essential" programs. This is insane.

    The only budget plan I've heard that made any sense to me is the Mack/Penny plan. Balances the budget in 6 years with a relatively painless 1% per year cut in total federal spending...an actual CUT in spending:

    An ad hominem attack combined with an emotionally based retort lacking any specificity, logic or reason. All in one sentence. Impressive.

    yes, by all means, lets spread the fixing of our financial picture out over the next 50 or 60 years. Lets let everything just sit as is until then. Fucking brilliant idea.

    White House Criticizes Ryan Plan For Millionaire Tax Cuts

    Just more of the same thing that got us here in the first place. Why does the GOP hate the middle class so much?

    Well, it should make it easy for the 99% of us come election time.

    Not a bad plan. The RP budget plan cuts 1 trillion the first year and a balance out in 3. So far the most superior plan to slash federal spending and bring fiscal sanity to washington. Too bad he'll retire this year and leave the inmates to run the asylum. Last doctors leaving. Bar the doors!!! :badgrin:

    Once again, imaginary numbers from the RepubliCONs and the right wing zombies fall into line.
