Pelosi rips Ryan's budget By Jordan Fabian - 04/05/11 11:10 AM ET
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) took to Twitter Tuesday to criticize House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan's (R-Wis.) budget plan.
While Ryan was still holding a press conference rolling out his plan to slash $5.8 trillion from current spending levels over ten years, Pelosi slammed the budget, keying in on its drastic Medicare and Medicaid reforms.
The #GOP Ryan budget is a path to poverty for America's seniors & children and a road to riches for big oil #GOPvalues
#GOP Path to Poverty budget eliminates guaranteed benefits for seniors under Medicare http://is.gd/LEmuZp #GOPvalues
Democrats are trying to make Ryan's budget radioactive by labeling as privatization his changes to entitlement programs.
Ryan is spending the day selling his plan to his colleagues and the public, saying that serious spending cuts need to be made now to stave off a full-blown fiscal crisis.
He also recognized that his plan might not be politically popular.
"Yeah, this stuff isn't politically popular. If it was, it would be fixed by now," he said on CNBC Tuesday morning.
PELOSI, YOU created the poverty!
She would crap her pants if she were forced to debate Ryan. Dumb bitch. You can tell how dumb she is. It’s sad and pathetic.
He was elected to the majority. She was not. Get on with it!
Join the crowd, Nance.
Seems like the ignorant ones on FR are right with you in trashing Ryan these days.
“Big Oil” the crazy old bat should be told that Canada is the largest recipient of our dollars for oil. So what do we support, Canada’s “big socialism.”
Typical Nancy boiler plate response. I know her response is inappropriate and irrelevant because no way is she smart enough to understand what Ryan is trying to accomplish with his plan.
She is either a despicable liar or hopelessly STOOPID. At least now she’s only one voice clamoring to be heard in the cacaphony that is the House, and thankfully easily ignored.
Is that botoxed moonbat hag still being quoted? She should shut her pie hole, and get to the back of the bus or preferably under it.
I bet she hasn’t even read it, so maybe they need to pass it to find out what IS in it.
Who didn’t see this Dem storyline coming? It’s all about the children and seniors snacking on Alpo.
Two tone Nazi at it again! Sorry Nancy but what exactly do you and your fellow ilk not understand about broke?
I have mixed feelings mostly because my Dh will be 54 this year and it will hurt us because of that but I also know we all must be ready for changes and that it is the right thing to do. I still think though that those who are collecting also should be asked to give a little up too except perhaps for thse collecting the lowest rates of SS.
She left out ‘women’.
The plastic surgeon must have stuck the botulism needle into her skull a little too deep. Paralyzed her brain.
Yeah, but still, we have to pass the budget so we can find out what’s in it.
National Democrats are never forced to make the tough fiscal decisions. I hate that.
Anyone who tries to be adult about a financial crisis is demagogued to death.
