    "When Paul Ryan says his priority is to make sure, he's just being America's accountant. This is the same guy that voted for two wars that were unpaid for, voted for the Bush tax cuts that were unpaid for, voted for the prescription drug bill that cost as much as my health care bill -- but wasn't paid for. So it's not on the level,"

    -Barack Hussein Obama

    Quick Question:

    Did the brain Transplant/implant bring the old Barack back?
    Did the start of the 2012 campaing bring the old Barack Back?
    Did someone kidnap Obama for the last 2 years, only to have the real one break free in the last week?

    This is just Reganomics, the same BS they've been spouting for thirty years. Supposedly they can get unemployment down to 2.5 % i think thats actually impossible. Its all about keeping tax cuts for the wealthy, i'm sick of listening to this Sh!t. Just let the bush tax cuts run out and bring the defense budget back to 2001-2002 levels. We spend more than the world combined on defense, thats insane. We could build fortress America for a lot less, i mean a lot less than what we spend on defense now.

    If Reganomics/supply side economics actually WORKED, we'd be in the black today.

    The sad reality is that the real battle plan of conservatives is to use supply side economics to "Starve the Beast". Thus creating a problem, to implement a solution that benefits only the elite.

    We need to do allthe things you discuss blue, and a few more things too.

    -Removal of the CAP on Social Security.
    -Flat tax.
    -Fund renewable/alt energy.
    -Quit being the world police, and start being the world peace corps.
    -Publicly funded elections.
    -Make election day a national holiday
    -Tax exporters of jobs
    -Tax importers of labor
    -Single Payer Healthcare

    Supply side was a scam then and still is now. Even David Stockman thinks its a joke.

    "Stockman was quoted as referring to the Reagan Revolution's legacy tax act as: "I mean, Kemp-Roth [Reagan's 1981 tax cut] was always a Trojan horse to bring down the top rate.... It's kind of hard to sell 'trickle down.' So the supply-side formula was the only way to get a tax policy that was really 'trickle down.' Supply-side is 'trickle-down' theory." Of the budget process in his first year on the job, Mr. Stockman is quoted as saying: "None of us really understands what's going on with all these numbers," which was used as the subtitle of the article."

    Nice way to distract from the substance of the budget, what he did in the past. BTW while he was behaving badly (ie the Bush Tax Cuts) the deficit wen from 400M to 160M, once Pelosi Since Pelosi became speaker and Reid Sen Maj leader the deficit has exploded to 1.6T+.

    Paul Ryan is a forward thinker. A pioneer, who is looking beyond tomorrow......75 years beyond tomorrow.

    No, we won't have to wait that long.

    We're clearly on a path to national disorder and unsustainable spending. All you have to do is look. Most of it is due to entitlement spending that is on autopilot.

    And, yes, Republican are to blame, too. We should bring the troops home, not just from Afghanistan and Iraq, but South Korea, Okinawa, Germany, and the other 144 countries where troops are stationed.

    We're building or have built an embassy in Baghdad larger than the Vatican State, admittedly the smallest country in the world. But talk about overkill!
