    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.

    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.

    Republicans patting themselves on the back in front of cameras on C-SPAN.
    Live Video - C-SPAN | C-SPAN

    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.

    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.

    Republicans have always had balls. It's the brains they're missing.
