Skip to comments.Sarah Palin: Paul Ryan’s “We’ll Increase Spending Now, Cut Spending Later” Budget Is A Joke
Posted on 04/03/2014 2:36:01 AM PDT by kingattax
Paul Ryan is dropping in likeability as he falls asleep at the wheel in Washington DC and proposes a crappy budget that increases spending yet again far from demonstrating any responsibility in governing.
Its so bad that Sarah Palin ranted about it on her Facebook page yesterday.
(Excerpt) Read more at rightwingnews.com ...
Accountants seem to have a way of twisting numbers around to make things come out, or appear to smelling rosy. Not being an account myself, he has not demonstrated to me that his plan would work. Back to the drawing board there Paul.......
I’m sure that Mr. Ryan’s budget is just peachy with the GOPe. He’s one of them.
>> Sarah Palin: Paul Ryans Well Increase Spending Now, Cut Spending Later Budget Is A Joke
I think Paul Ryan is good and I don’t think he’s “one of them”. The guys got great ideas and if you hold out to until you get EVERYTHING you want you’ll never get ANYTHING you want.
I’m hard a core constitutional conservative but I also realize to get to where you need to be you have to take small steps to get there. The uneducated voters won’t go for massive changes to the right like they did for the entitlement left. You have to ease them into it or you’ll never see “good” change.
Kudos to Sarah barracuda. This is the same old shuck and jive. Congress never gets around to the promised spending cuts
We also George H W bush v/s George Mitchell. Read my lips!
I really wish instead of going, with her family, in the reality-TV direction, she had gone all wonk for a few years and were a candidate for 2016.
And this is the guy Whackjob chose as his running mate to appear more conservative? Boy, Obama’s bad, but we dodged a bullet there. Seriously. Another “compassionate conservative” administration right after Bush would have doomed all stripes of conservatism - authoritarian, moralist, and libertarian - to the dust bin for decades.
Sorry, but I disagree. Has every body forgotten Calvin Coolidge? This is what his administration did, in the 1920’s. Immediately upon being sworn in, his administration cut government spending 50%, and also cut taxes 50%. Oh, there was government consternation for a year. Then the economy took of like a rocket ship. That was the largest growth we’ve ever had. Now, I realize that we owe 17 trillion dollars, and it must be paid. So here is my suggestion: Yes, cut government spending 50%. We can eliminate 3/4 of all our Alphabet Govt. Agencies. That alone will save us about a trillion dollars a year. By cutting taxes, we would actually get more money for the government. And, most important, start utilizing all our sources of energy. We could be the world’s largest exporter of energy. Within 5 to 6 years, we would be the world’s largest lender, and we’ll have everyone paid off, and we’ll have money in the bank.
Sarah is right on this one!
It is simply a gutless political attempt to avoid making the hard decisions now.
Everyone knows that the Ryan budget is a joke. I’d like to see Palin develop her own budget to show the establishment how fiscal responsibility can be achieved, and more quickly than Ryan is proposing.
This will get as many votes as Obama’s budgets.
Glad to hear you are hard core. So what hard core conservative principle has Paul Ryan stood for recently?
Congress is like Calvin of the old cartoon strip ‘Calvin and Hobbes’.
Calvin always puts off doing his homework because he would rather play with Hobbes, rationalizing that ‘future Calvin’ will handle it.
The problem with that thinking is that ‘future Calvin’ always comes to think he’s present Calvin.
And life isn’t a cartoon, even if Congress acts like childish clowns.
It’s the same old “If you give me a hamburger today, I’ll gladly pay you tomorrow” budget.
At least Joseph Stalin had Five Year Plans whose goals were never met.
Ryan bandies about his mythological concept that the budget will somehow be balanced ten years down the road.
HOW ABOUT BALANCING THE BUDGET NOW AND GETTING THIS NATIONS FISCAL HOUSE IN ORDER???????
But the creditors prefer the slow drip of budget cuts here and there along with higher taxes, so the politicians like Ryan follow the big money campaign contributors instead of taking principled action to get federal government living within its means.
Its time for the nation to take its medicine.
BALANCE THE BUDGET NOW!!!!
Let the Left whine, moan and get violent. They will totally discredit their cause like the union thugs did getting in Scott Walker’s face in Wisconsin.
Coolidge had to get there before he could start cutting taxes and spending and he didn’t run on cutting spending by 50% and taxes by 50%. He got there by being likeable, and running against the opposition.
I agree we can probably cut 1/2 of government but you have to get there to do so.
And anyone who wants to actually cut spending, even if its only by 5%, is an “extreme conservative” and a racist to boot.
Seriously, any household going through a recession could find a way to cut its budget by 5%, 10% perhaps even 25%. The United States? Forget it.
and she was ‘cute’ on ‘TONIGHT SHOW’ last night.
I’m a realist.. and I’ve asked many times who is the PERFECT Freeper Candidate and what I’ve seen is everyone jumps on the bandwagon for the new guy until that new guy says one thing they don’t like and they’re all over it i.e. Ryan.. was good now bad, Rubio.. was good now bad.. the list goes on.
I voted for Romney/Ryan because anything was better than the POS we have now and Ryan would have influenced Romney. Not voting got us 4 more years of progressive BS digging the hole deeper.
I like Cruz, I like Palin, I like Rand Paul but there’s been negativity against all of them on FR.
So I’ll ask again.. who fits the bill? Who is PERFECT?
See?? Its cool to diss Ryan plan NOW that Sarah says it.
I was dissing this Ryan plan strategy here back three years ago 2011 when Ryan was a big hero here. It was a joke then and its even worse now because he rolls it out every year, even after losing the WH in 2012.
Increase spending on medicare now and it magically disappears in 10 years.
It wasn't cool to diss Ryan when Sarah approved LOL (It wasnt just her BTW)
Anybody have a link to a clip of the skit?
Where did you get the idea I supported increase spending?
It wasnt just her, Levin, Hannity, Rush, they were all praising his ‘spend more on medicare NOW and it magically goes away in 10 years’ plan (and they all called that saving medicaret.) This was first early 2011.
It was ridiculous and still is.
'Stop thinking so much and read the script SOL, not that script that ones old, today we are against it' ,
we were flamed pretty hard for not falling in line to follow the lemmings off the cliff...
i feel much better today knowing that SP agrees... 8^)
Spending on medicare, spend more on it now and it magically goes away in 10 years, AHHH, but make sure you call that ‘fixing it’ or 'saving it'
It was ridiculous in 2011 and it still is.
Here ya go.
It's interesting that Fallon started the skit by giving Palin credit for predicting the Ukraine crisis back in 2008. The skit included a joke about Obama's "mom jeans". Palin was very well-received by the audience. The times they are a'changing.
Congratulations on being ahead of the curve.
Its been a long slow learning process for me because the GOPe fakery was fooling me for so long enhanced by the talk radio personalities and Fox News that hyped the GOPe politicians and their scams.
If Sarah Palin sees it differently now, good for her.
She’s learning like I have learned that these Republican politicians are scamming us with fantasy conservatism.
Heck, the 20-week “abortion ban” is Texas is fake because there’s a clause in the law that says if someone feels the law would cause an “undue burden” for them, the law doesn’t apply to them.
I wonder how many other 20-week “abortion ban” laws the GOP politicians are pushing in various GOP states are fake as well.
This Ryan thing has been a pet peeve of mine for three years.
In fact even ~ a year ago a few GOPe here freaked when I once again dissed it.
In 2011 and somewhat in 2012 and 2013 the line I got back was like
“ Look, $%%#%, if Ryan proposed cutting anything from Medicare sooner than 10 years from now he would be demonized. He needs to do it this way so it wont be demonized. He is saving it. “
“Look %$#& , he balances the budget in 10 years. That's not enough for you?? what are you a brain dead conservative extremist?”
But now its OK , HAHA
No it was indefensible Rush, as usual you are the compass pointing everywhere but North
I’ve listened to Rush for 25 years.
Great place to get info, but you are right.
His opinions aren’t worth squat.
On that subject, I didn't buy either of these for second.
Talk radio giant Rush Limbaugh says that Sen. John McCain will score a stunning upset over Sen. Barack Obama and win the presidency on Nov. 4
[Rush] Limbaugh Predicts McCain Victory (NewsMax ^ | October 31, 2008 | David A. Patten, FR thread link )
I almost forgot this one :
We Could See a McCain Landslide (Rushlimbaugh.com, August 12, 2008)
The enthusiasm that got people out in 2010, I'm seeing at every Mitt Romney rally. Romney's drawing crowds of 20,000, 25,000, 30,000, 15,000. The enthusiasm that we all saw in 2010 is there. The same issues that existed in 2010 exist today. There hasn't been anything that's gotten better.
Rush: Everything But Polls Say Romney Landslide (Newmake Monday, 05 Nov 2012)
From the amount of vote fraud they are now uncovering I doubt seriously Zippo did win in 2012.
Let’s look at history, shall we? Calvin got the presidency through the back door. When Harding died, he was the VP. He was chosen as VP because he was the complete opposite of Harding. “SILENT CAL” was his “MONICKER”. He did his job so well, that he was re-elected on his own, the next time around. Then when he left office, in ‘28, Hoover took over, and started to screw around with the economy, hence the depression in ‘29.
You can only make at most a two year budget. One Congress can not bind another Congress. That is why all this 10 year BS is just that BULL$HIT.
Spend now, pay later, what a GREAT plan there Paul! Why don’t you just sit down and STFU.
From the poorness of McCain as a candidate, and the unpopularity of Iraq in 2008, and the debt crisis and failing economy, and then with the emergency 'Sky is falling' TARP bailout blank check bill (that Bush_ Paulson pushed) , I couldn't see how McCain could win, fair election or not.
Keep in mind the lib base accused GWB of stealing BOTH his elections, they even posted a ‘Im sorry world’ website after 2004.
How does McCain loosing in 2008 make it irrelevant as to whether or not Zippo won through voter fraud in 2012?
You lost me.
My mistake, I thought you posted 2008.
In 2012 Obama had a huge advantage from the start, no primary, no primary debates, while Romney was getting beat up and taking some silly positions to win that first.
Romney was also a pretty crappy candidate to run, and Newt started the Bain theme for Obama.
And then there was Tod Akin moments and then Romney's 47% vid to his $$$ donors that sealed it, and Romney was scared to beat Obama up on Benghazi in the last two debates.
Another set of disasters for GOP.
by Sept 1st, I fully expected Romney to lose in November .
I was pointing out that each party claims fraud now when they lose a major POTUS election, 2000, 2004, 2008 and now 2012.
Yet I noticed the fraud goes away magically in 2010 and 2014 when GOP wins,
I too expected him to win in September, but the date was Sept 12.
He had to win to cover up Benghazi, which would explain the massive voter fraud.
It would be nice to hold the line on spending, rather than increase. Once again, it’s compromise on one side only. Very frustrating.
LOL, he didn't have to try hard, Romney was too scared to bring it up in the last two debates and many freepers here agreed with him that he should NOT bring it up. I can find those threads easily.
Karl Rove said he was sure that Romney would win, Dick Morris said it was 100% certain
Who can argue with those two?
If there is over 100% voter participation in a dem controlled district which repubs have no control that’s a good indication of dem voter fraud because repubs don’t have any control they don’t have the ability to commit voter fraud.
OK? You follow this so far?
When dems claim voter fraud because somehow repubs have taken control of a dem controlled district without anyone knowing it and rigged the vote, it’s bunk or the dems rigged the vote themselves.
Did you bother to notice it was the Clintons that started the “Bush stole the election” in 2000 and it was also Bill Clinton that got sued for “voter disenfranchisement” while he was Gov. of Arkansas?
In other words the 2 people, 1 of which was known for voter disenfranchisement, that had what was called a “20 year plan”, meaning BC would be president 8 years, 4 years for another president, then HC would be president 8 years (8+4+8=20) had to come up with a plan not only to make sure Gore didn’t get elected but a plan to bring down a sitting president and keep him at one term.
You think it’s possible if there was in fact voter fraud in dem controlled districts in the 2000 election it might have come from the 2 people already associated with voter fraud and also had a vested interest in making sure Gore didn’t get elected?
Did you also bother to notice after the 2004 election bin Laden put out a tape in which the objective of the 9/11 attack was to bring down a sitting president?
I got an idea, maybe bin Laden was so in touch with the news he just picked up on the Clintons 20 year plan from the news and “spontaneously” planned the 9/11 attack to help Hillary get into the WH.
Well if its a liberal district (like Baltimore city) then it doesn't matter if 150% vote, its not making a difference.
Unlike Romney, Obama campaign worked on getting Dems to vote in swing states.
