Obama’s 2013-2022 Budget Proposal- OUTRAGEOUS!

President Obama seeks to run a $6 trillion dollar total budget deficit between 2013 and 2022.  This is not moral!  It is not ethical! And it must not be allowed to happen!

Just imagine if you started a business and in the documents governing that business you included a deficit budget for the next 10 years, with absolutely no method of making up the difference.  Not only that, but you included in the documents that your children and grandchildren would be responsible for all debt even past your death, and that there was no plan to increase receipts or decrease outlays.  You would not do it!  And you should not let the federal government do it!

Budget? What budget?

Ryan steps away from Ryan’s Medicare cuts

8/15/2012- Kelly Knight  There is a headline in the Los Angeles Times today that reads “Romney steps away from Paul Ryan’s Medicare cuts.”  Really?  In light of the fact that Ryan has joined the Romney team, shouldn’t it read “Ryan steps toward Romney’s plan for Medicare?”

There is much talk today about Paul Ryan’s budget proposal including the same budget cuts to Medicare that President Obama’s budget for Obamacare proposes, and the Romney/Ryan campaign is being lambasted for it.  However, it is much ado about nothing, in my opinion.  Let’s say, for example, that you are a member of the Methodist church, and your friend invites you to attend the Baptist church with him.  You do, and after a while you decide to join the Baptist church.  In doing so, you naturally give up those tenets of the Methodist church that are contrary to the Baptist church.  Paul Ryan has joined the Romney team as Romney’s VP and running mate, and in so doing has now also thrown his support to Romney’s plans for Medicare and the economy.  You would expect otherwise?
