    "Paul Ryan's most recent budget proposal would save those making between $20,000 and $30,000 just $246 in taxes, compared to savings of $265,011 for those who make over $1 million, according to analysis from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities

    The "Path to Prosperity" would cut $2.4 trillion from Medicaid and other health care programs for people with low or moderate incomes, according to analysis from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.

    Under Ryan's "Path to Prosperity" as many as 44 million fewer people would be covered under Medicaid, according to CBS News.

    Ryan would raise the age of Medicare eligibility from 65 to 67. If the Affordable Care Act was repealed, something Romney has pledge, that means many 65- and 66-year-olds would be left uninsured, the CBPP reports.

    Under Ryan's "Path to Prosperity," senior citizens would have to pay as much as 68 percent of their health care coverage, up from 25 percent today, CBS News reports.

    Ryan's proposed "Path to Prosperity" includes $134 billion in cuts to [To Food Stamp Programs], according to analysis from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.

    A single mother of two working full time at the minimum wage would have her Child Tax Credit cut by more than $1,500, assuming she made $14,500 a year, according to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.

    Compared to the most recent White House budget proposal, Ryan's budget spends 33 percent less on education, training, employment and social services, the Washington Post reports.

    Ryan's proposed cuts to environment and natural resource programs could result in weather forecasts being only half as accurate, according to Third Way's budget expert, David Kendall. "For many people planning a weekend outdoors, they may have to wait until Thursday for a forecast as accurate as one they now get on Monday," he's quoted as saying in the Washington Post."

    I imagine it would be predicated on raising more revenue from those most able to pay, and significant reductions in military spending rather than services to citizens.

    revitalize the middle class with policies to put more money and independence into the hands of the middle class and working class.

    (specifically security from unjust self-serving whims of his employer.)



    the direct opposite of Libertarianism.

    Let us know when Mittens Romney - the guy running for president - releases a budget plan that specifically lays out how he would pay for all those new tax cuts for the rich he proposes.

    Romney's budget plan is a sketchy outline that provides little to no details about what he would would cut and by how much.
    Non-partisan fact checking is still able to determine that his numbers can't possibly add up.

    In order to pay for Romney's lavish new tax cuts for the rich - middle class Americans would be forced to pay higher taxes.

    FUCK Romney.

    FUCK Ryan.

    Because their budget proposals would fuck the middle class.

    Ryan's plan eliminates tax loopholes corporations are able to get away with and simply provides one big and final tax break to everyone to help stimulate the economy. This idea that Ryan wants to get rich people richer through massive tax cuts is BS, a lie spun by desperate people.

    HAHA
    You Tea Party Repubs will say anything!

    Both the Romney plan and (especially) the Ryan budget plan - give the rich hefty tax cuts and force middle and lower income Americans to pay more.

    And of course that's not even the worst part of the Ryan budget plan for middle class Americans.

    The worst part is the fact the Ryan budget plan would privatize Medicare (forcing seniors to pay thousands more for their health care costs) and partially privatize Social Security (which would cut monthly benefits for seniors).

    Middle class Americans spend their working lives paying into these programs and depend on having them there for their retirement years.

    Romney and Ryan want to rip apart the social safety net that the middle class relies on - in order to help the rich get even richer.

    FUCK ROMNEY/RYAN.

    Until then, your uninformed commentary isn't necessary .
