Even Conservative Stars Like Paul Ryan Don't Have the Political Courage to Defuse America's Debt Bomb
Cuts government spending to protect hardworking taxpayers;
Tackles the drivers of our debt, so our troops don’t pay the price for Washington’s failure to take action;
Restores economic freedom and ensures a level playing field for all by putting an end to special-interest favoritism and corporate welfare;
Reverses the President’s policies that drive up gas prices, and instead promotes an all-of the-above strategy for unlocking American energy production to help lower costs, create jobs, and reduce dependence on foreign oil.
Strengthens health and retirement security by taking power away from government bureaucrats and empowering patients instead with control over their own care;
- Reforms our broken tax code to spur job creation and economic opportunity by lowering rates, closing loopholes, and putting hardworking taxpayers ahead of special interests.
“What is really disappointing is that the GOP budget assumes that the federal government should continue to do everything, or at least almost everything, it is currently doing. We will never have a balanced federal budget, low taxes, economic prosperity, and individual liberty unless Congress stops trying to run the world, run the economy, and run our lives.If Republicans really want to win in November, they will have to draw a clear distinction between themselves and Obama's disastrous agenda. And producing a budget that does not seriously address our nation's debt crisis will not distinguish them at all in the eyes of the American people.
Paul hit the nail on the head with that statement. America needs fundamental changes, not band-aids. Ryan's budget puts a piece of chewed bubblegum on a structural crack in a damn about to break. Apparently, not even "fiscal conservatives" like Ryan have taken the Greek Debt Crises to heart. Don't get me wrong, as far as Republicans go, Paul Ryan is about as good as it gets. He is a smart, articulate, man who I think has the best intentions. If he would have jumped into the Republican primary, aside from Paul, he would have been the hands down best candidate. However, that is also what is so frustrating about his budget. If Ryan is the great white hope for this country's fiscal crises, and this is the best he can do, we as a country are in deep, deep trouble.
