    Since the political wonks were going crazy over Ryan's courageous budget, I looked at the CBO scoring of his plan. Hahahahahaha.....I'm laughing as I type.....Ryan's plan assumes that revenues will rise from 15% to 19% of GDP, a 27% increase. Which revenues are increasing? Who knows? Ryan didn't spell that out in his plan; he just figured in an arbitrary increase. In the world of government, increases in revenues are usually called "taxes," so all you middle class and lower parasites better look out for a tax increase.

    He also calls for a 50% decrease in non-interest discretionary spending - aid to the poor, veterans' programs, tax credits, etc. What is he cutting, specifically? Nobody knows because it wasn't spelled out. However, I'm going to take a wild guess here and assume that none of these cuts will hurt higher-income folks.

    Looks, guys, Bush started two wars and CUT taxes. Does that sound like living within one's means? Of course not! It's time to pay the piper through higher taxes, NOT penalize people struggling to make ends meet in a harsh economy. We enjoyed years of tax decreases and now we need to pay for those wars. Stop whining.
