    FACT: Paul Ryan’s budget passed by the House balances the budget and brings down the national debt according to the CBO.

    FACT #2: The liberals have not offered any plan in 13 years which will balance the budget.

    Fact # 1 the Democrats were the last ones who had a balanced budget….in fact a budget surplus.
    Fact # 2 Paul Ryan ran for VP based on his wonderful budget that wouldn’t have touched the budget for like 20 years before it did anything all while giving his big donation donors a great big fat tax cut….and it was voted against by over 5.5 million voters.

    Nef, how long are you going to re-hash your lost election

  4. Neftali:

    FACT: Paul Ryan’s budget plan was such a political disaster that he and Mitt Romney couldn’t carry Ryan’s home state — or even his hometown — in last year’s election.

    FACT: Ryan’s budget would eliminate Medicare’s guarantee to retirees by turning it into a voucher plan.

    FACT: Ryan’s budget would turn Medicaid and food stamps into block grants, which states could cut freely.

    FACT: Ryan’s budget would would shrink the federal role in education, job training, transportation and scientific and medical research.

    FACT: Paul Ryan is a self-admitted Ayn Randian zealot, an extremist who was a drag on a Republican presidential ticket which was already weak with the notorious prevaricator Mitt Romney at the top of it.

    But, hey, don’t get me wrong. I like Paul Ryan. He’s a great target for us libs.

    I believe Ryan was the clincher for Obama…look at the polling before and after his entry into the race…Romney never could break the all important 50 % number critical to winning….and the total BS story they were attempting to sell about the 800 billion from Medacare…lie

    doc,

    Maybe you should go look at Reagan’s economic plan: increased spending, reduced taxes, increased borrowing, and a wild projection of economic growth, which would yield a balanced budget. Well, it didn’t happen. The deficit went from $42B to $365B and the debt went from less than $1T to about $3T. Reagan’s VP, George H.W. Bush, called it “voodoo economics”. Reagan’s budget director, David Stockman, quite in disgust.

    I just thought you’d be interested in a little history.

    Reagan had but one plan…VISA….and im not talking about the immigration kind either..!
    He forced the military to re-start the B-1 bomber that was a terrible costly bad airplane that cost more to fly then anything we had.

  8. Craig Knauss

    Brian,

    The B-1 was a fiasco. They bought 100 of them, but only ONE bomber loader. It took 8 hours to load only one plane. To load them all took a month at 24 hrs/day. A number of them crashed while training. I believe their first actual use wasn’t until the Afghan war.

    And don’t forget about the battleships. $350M to rehab each one of the four ships. They were used for only 2 years before the Iowa blew up and the rest went back to mothballs.

    And don’t forget about the Midgetman Missile program along with “Star Wars” missile defense system. I still can’t believe the Ruskies fell for that crap.

  9. Brian Opsahl

    Well…now there you go again…lol

    Our company made the ballscrew that would make the wings sweep in and out as it went from sonic to supersonic speeds…only one problem…they had to be re-done after moving them only once….you know how they fixed it……just don’t go to supersonic speed no more…thats how Reagan wanted things…his way…and it’s still costing us millions
