    Every elected Republican in Washington is in favour of this budget. Romney has praised it in the past and many on this board have praised it as well. Both liberals and conservatives talk about wanting to discuss the issues, so okay, lets discuss an issue. Lets discuss the Ryan Budget.

    If you're in favour of it, why? Specifically, how will it help the country?

    If you're not in favour of it, why? Specifically, what don't you like and what would you do instead?

    Everyone says they want to talk about the issues, so lets talk.

    If you haven't had the chance to read the budget yet, here it is: Fiscal Year 2013 Budget | Budget.House.Gov

    Wrong, 5 GOP members voted against it in the Senate.

    One was Rand Paul.

    Next!

    I oppose it because it doesn't do enough to cut spending, relies too much on optimistic revenue projections, and is based on the pretense that we need to keep spending more money just because we always have.

    Ahh, "favor" does not equal voting for it. My bad.

    I don't like the Ryan budget. I think there are some good things in it, however if you're going to cut so much from assistance programs you shouldn't then turn around and increase tax breaks for corporations and increase the already bloated defense budget.

    We don't need to worry about Ryan's budget because Romney is distancing himself from it after he once said it was "marvelous", proving he'll say anything for votes and making one wonder why the hell he picked Ryan then!??? Yikes!
