socalfitness saidYou can attack Ryan all you want, but the fact is he is the one who had the balls to put out a plan. The budget from the President has been completely repudiated, and the Democrats in Congress have refused to propose anything for fear of political backlash. They strike me as little cowards hiding under Mother's skirt.
Interesting commentary... but the electorate will make the decision after the next election....
Yep, the selfish electorate that will vote to have benefits even though it means robbing future generations. Hopefully enough people decide to vote against selfishness and for their country's sustainability.
Greedy "selfish" wealthy Repubs have been voting Repub for years out of a "selfish" lust for the tax cuts for the rich that the Repub party advocates, even though it means "robbing future generations" and today's middle and lower income Americans of lost tax revenue.
Hopefully, enough people will decide to vote against the Republican party's budget plan to destroy Medicare in order to pay for tax cuts for the rich.
Tax cuts are simply letting people keep more of what they've earned by hard work or ingenuity.
You are thinking that people who have "more" than you are to be used as a bank or as some kind of accessible reserve money to "bail" everything out when times get tough.
I'm thinking about what's good for the country.
Rich greedy Repubs are just thinking about their own greedy self interest..
I'm thinking about the fact that the low tax rates on the rich implemented by the Repubs have a shitty record at creating jobs or stimulating the economy and a long repeated proven track record of blowing up the National Debt.
I'm thinking about the fact that raising taxes on the rich after WWII worked at reducing and eliminating the massive war debt without harming the economy, and that it resulted in a long period of economic prosperity and an expanding thriving middle class.
I'm thinking about the fact that raising taxes on the rich at the beginning of the Clinton administration spurred the strongest economic expansion in U.S. history and created 23 million jobs over the 8 years Clinton was in office.
I'm thinking about the fact that Bush CUT taxes on the rich at the beginning of his administration and: doubled the National Debt, had the worst recession in 70 years hit on his watch, and only 3 million jobs were created in the 8 years Bush was in office.
The problem is that the only thing rich Repubs think about is their own selfish interests, and the short term.
That's why 30 years of the failed "deficits don't matter" tax cuts for the rich Repub economic policy has saddled Americans with crushing debt and run our economy into the ground
