We need quick action to balance the budget.
Guys like Paul Ryan or Pat Toomey see one ten years or more down the road.
That’s too long to wait.
If Rand Paul is ready to get it done quickly and balance the books, I’ll say Amen to that and vote for him, too.
Paul Ryans “plans to balance the budget” are a sham.
The only people who believe that Ryan has a plan to balance the budget are the people who haven’t actually READ his plan.
His plan NEVER balances the budget. NEVER. At the end of his time horizon, we still have a $400B/year deficit. That’s certainly lower than it is now, but that’s not balanced, unless he’s got a new dictionary of which I’m not aware in which the term “balanced budget” has been redefined.
The only way to get the budget balanced now is to make severe cuts and start making them soon, because at the rate were racking up debt, when interest rates start going back up the situation is going to explode upwards on us, and then we won’t ever be able to get control of the debt without repudiating it.
