A Roadmap for America's Future | The Budget Committee Republicans Cut the elderly a check and let them go shop for health care. (Let them shop for policies for 80 year olds. Lot's of insurance companies sell those. Uh, let's see, health care or cat food. Which is it?) Open insurance across state lines. (Because Virginia has such success regulating companies in California.) The Flimflam Man http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/06/opinion/06krugman.html?_r=2 All it would do is cut benefits for the middle class while slashing taxes on the rich. And I do mean slash. The Tax Policy Center finds that the Ryan plan would cut taxes on the richest 1 percent of the population in half, giving them 117 percent of the plan’s total tax cuts. That’s not a misprint. Even as it slashed taxes at the top, the plan would raise taxes for 95 percent of the population. --------------------------------------- How long will a Republican base support their destruction by their leadership? Funny how the right can support trillions in tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires but complain the deficit is growing. So rich people who rarely go into the military and made billions and billions in Iraq shouldn't have to "pay" because it's "their" money? I fail to see the "Right Wing Republican" logic. Don't they have an oil company to apologize to? WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO JOBS JOBS JOBS???? Let's raise the retirement age so we can have 70 year old policemen and firemen. How about a 70 year old waiter, or better yet, a "life guard"?
