    Republicans in the House of Representatives unveiled a budget proposal that supposedly will eliminate the deficit - producing a balanced budget within 9 years,

    The GOP budget proposal calls for an increase of $380 billion in defense spending, the privatization of Medicare, and savings of $2 trillion by repealing the Affordable Care Act (AKA Obamacare).

    More than 16 million people have enrolled via ACA health exchanges, with many signing up for Medicaid. If this proposed budget is adopted, will the 16 million people be uninsured once again?

    It won't become law, it would bring stability back to our economy and that would be counter productive for Democrats.

    Does it invest more into America? Like infrastructure, science and r&d??? I know the republicans spent trillions on iraq and afickington.

    Americans won't vote for the republicans as most Americans want some socialist elements within their life. Medicade and SSI are two of such things.

    Investing in your country instead of on your massive military on some other country is a good idea.
