    And why did they remove the original number?

    Weigel : Heritage Has New Unemployment Projections for the Ryan Budget

    I wonder if anyone will still try to defend the original numbers, even with Heritage conceding they were unrealistic. Though I will be interested in the thoughts of whether even this new update is feasible as according to the creator of the model that Heritage is using.

    "Nothing else changes as a result of that, but the employment number changes"

    This is why no one should take their "analysis" seriously. A 1.5 point difference in unemployment changes a LOT - claiming "nothing else changes" is unadulterated bullshit.

    On the back of a napkin, that 1.5 points represents about 2.25M workers.

    You really should be embarrassed by the studity of your comments. They are becoming too frequent and offer nothing of substance; this is an example of one of the many idiotgrams you have posted.
    If you can't offer a counter-point, why bother?

    Did the Heritage Foundation predict 4% unemployment and a balanced budget 7 years out from the Clinton plan in 1993?

    :lol:

    Here we are at 20%+ un and underemployment, and you loons on the left are hysterical over the prospect of less than 5% unemployment.

    There is no point in providing any other comment than pointing out how inane you are.

    I've gotten to the point where I only believe numbers from CBO. It seems they are the only ones who haven't taken sides. CBO pretty much says the Ryan budget is fiction.

    I don't think repubs like the CBO when it disagrees with them.
