There exist two sources for specific proposals that I'm aware of - and Paul Ryan has not at all been shy at giving specific examples of what he will cut:
Pathetic. $343billion?!??! When the Federal Deficit is $1.17 trillion in 2010 and according to the CBO will be ~$533 billion in 2013?
Continuing the Bush tax cuts for everyone will cost between $200 and $500billion per year---depending on who we extend them for.
Do you see what I'm talking about? The plan you've proposed SIMPLY DOES NOT ACHIEVE THE OBJECTIVE OF CLOSING THE DEFICIT.
Eliminating the Department of Energy saves $23billion per year---a drop in the ocean.
Eliminating the Department of Education saves $46.7billion per year---NOT NEARLY ENOUGH.
It's a wonder anyone here graduated high school with arithmetic skills this bad!
