    That is a bald-faced lie. Ryan does not plan to repeal Obamacare. He counts the savings from Obamacare on Medicare and the taxes as well. He just doesn't want to give out the "care" part. icon_lol.gif

    Today’s Guardian:

    Paul Ryan's Republican budget: this is just leftovers warmed up twice over
    Ryan's stubborn efforts to resurrect the moldy corpses of his budget plan keep Capitol Hill stuck in an unworkable time warp.

    Somewhere, there is a long German word that exists only to describe the deep exhalation, the tired sigh, that everyone who read Paul Ryan's "new" budget felt today.

    This is the 2013 Path to Prosperity budget that Ryan proposed to balance the federal budget by cutting $4.6tn in government spending over the next 10 years.
    Like some sad fiscal remake of the movie Groundhog Day, this is also the same as Ryan's 2012 Path to Prosperity budget, and very much like Ryan's 2010 "Roadmap for America's Future" budget, only with a repeal of Obamacare mystifyingly included. This is the budget that since 2011 has not only failed to become law, but also lost House and Senate seats, as well as the White House, for the Republican party.

    For the rest, see:
