The GOP Budget and America's Future
wsj.com ^ | 3/19/2012 | Paul Ryan

Less than a year ago, the House of Representatives passed a budget that took on our generation's greatest domestic challenge: reforming and modernizing government to prevent an explosion of debt from crippling our nation and robbing our children of their future.

Absent reform, government programs designed in the middle of the 20th century cannot fulfill their promises in the 21st century. It is a mathematical and demographic impossibility. And we said so.

We assumed there would be some who would distort for political gain our efforts to preserve programs like Medicare. Having been featured in an attack ad literally throwing an elderly woman off a cliff, I can confirm that those assumptions were on the mark.

But one year later, we can say with some confidence that the attacks have failed. Courageous Democrats have joined our efforts. And bipartisan opposition to the path of broken promises is growing.

And so Tuesday, House Republicans are introducing a new Path to Prosperity budget that builds on what we've achieved.

This budget is a start at controlling the debt and reducing the deficit but it is still a net annual increase in spending.

These sons of camels are still using the baseline budgeting bullshit, instead of freezing or cutting spending.

With this approach and if mittens becomes President, the budget will never get balanced and the long term debt problem will not be solved.

This is a slower path to european socialism, we won't get there until maybe 2070 instead of 2020 under the demonRAT plan.

I am so sick of these dog and pony shows, Mr Ryan if you wish for the support of We the People on your budget fraud, stand up NOW and declare that not another piece of legislation goes through the House of Representatives until there has been a BUDGET PASSED BY BOTH HOUSES AND SIGNED BY THE PRESIDENT or HIS VETO OVER-RIDDEN. That is YOUR PRIMARY DUTY under the Constitution, Do your JOB.
The Peoples House Holds ALL THE CARDS, start USING THEM ya big sissy.
