Class war budgeting: Paul Ryan and House GOP want more money for the rich, less for the rest.
The Morning Plum: Don?t let Paul Ryan skate this time
He also said right on TV that the tax cuts made his budget easier to balence.
The right is dumb as a box of rocks
Watching this one go through committee is going to be a friggin' hoot.
Taking away safety nets. We call that, "Choice, they like that."
Taking away federal funding to states. We call that, "Giving them Responsibility, they want that."
Giving all the money to the rich. Well, they actually don't want that but they will do their civic duty and take it anyway.
Oh the irony!
Very funny is that LyinRyan's "plan" ASSSumes a lower unemployment rate than we have ever had in the history of our country.
This from a man and a party that fights against the creation of jobs.

Wonder if they will be taking questions for once.
Paul Ryan has retreated even further into fantasy land. The mystery is, what are his motivations?
Ryan is standing there dismissing his budget as simply a token to start the process. Let's see how it starts in committee. Suppose to be discussed tomorrow in House Budget Committee.
Questions! He is actually taking question. Wonder how many intro phrases he is going to give them.
Get back to us when you have some thoughtful analysis. Bottom line, this current business as usual of tax and spend isn't sustainable except in the mind of the terminally stupid.
That is something I would really like to know. These right wingers get odder as time goes on. I really, really want to know if he believes his own talk. He sat right in committee last year and listen to the argument about cutting the transportation budget in half like it was a insignificant little detail.
One liner from Ryan: "Elections have consequences. We're in the majority."
Paul Ryan has put a balanced budget on the table, and now he will stand behind it and take questions and punches and kicks to the groin.
Finally, a Republican with some balls.
the only problem is its doesnt jibe with reality
His budget uses the same cuts in medicare he campaigned against and plans to repeal by repppealing "Obamacare".
it still doesnt add up under scrutitny

Republicans have always had balls. It's the brains they're missing.
Watched all 9 hours of it. You?
That document is from last year by the way. This budget will be for FY014.
