An analysis of Rep. Paul Ryan's budget proposal

And the least read post of all time, this.

But for anyone who gives a damn about where the country is headed, a must read. Go to The Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget.

The most important words in his “The Path to Prosperity” are these:

Nearly five years after the financial crisis, many families still haven’t recovered. The typical household’s income, when adjusted for inflation, is lower now than it was in 2007.1 Over 46 million people live in poverty today,2 and over 90 million are out of the workforce altogether.3

  • What's to analyze? Just say Republican and you know what's in it. Give to the haves. Take away from the have-nots.

  • Aquinas, that is just hyperbole, cheerleading...... How do you feel about companies like Caterpillar and G.E. getting away with keeping hundreds of billions overseas to avoid paying taxes, Obama was so upset about it he made GE CEO Jeffrey Immelt his jobs czar. But lets put all our energy into bastardizing a small business owner making $250,000 a year and 'not paying their fair share' to the have-nots.

    You pander to a Democrat aristocracy that has only swelled in wealth over the past five years, largely by using demagoguery that you willingly lap up.
