Capitalizing on the previous excellent ad for the Path to Prosperity, comes another from House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan...
This budget plan was initially proposed last year; however, the Democrats, pundits, and unfortunately some so-called Republicans, worked against it...and for what? To run off of NO BUDGET for another consecutive year. That is not governance, folks; that's a path to economic, and thus national, ruin...when it should be at the very least, with responsible voters, a political poison pill for those who act so recklessly.
If you missed the broader explanation before (last year), here it is again for your convenience. These videos aren't long, so PLEASE WATCH!
This isn't "social engineering," but quite the antithesis of it. This is a conservative effort to rollback governmental social engineering, place more decisions and responsibility in the hands of citizens, and save the economic engine of our nation.
"The Founding Fathers knew a government can't control the economy without controlling people. And they knew when a government sets out to do that, it must use force and coercion to achieve its purpose. So we have come to a time for choosing." ~ Ronald Reagan
UPDATES: More details on today's budget unveil from the American Spectator:
Today marks the beginning of a full court press by Paul Ryan on behalf of the fiscal 2013 House Republican budget proposal: multiple television appearances, a Capitol Hill press conference, a Wall Street Journal op-ed, and a speech at the American Enterprise Institute. Last year's budget faced a vicious Democratic onslaught, including allegations that the plan ended Medicare and an ad showing Ryan pushing an old lady in a wheelchair off a cliff.
This year's budget preserves the option of traditional Medicare while transitioning away from single payer to premium support for competitive private insurance plans. It repeals -- but doesn't yet replace -- Obamacare. It streamlines the tax code, closing loopholes and replacing the existing tax brackets with two low rates of 10 and 25 percent. It shifts toward a "territorial" tax system on business profits earned abroad. It lowers the top corporate tax rate, currently among the highest in the industrialized world. The budget also privatizes Fannie and Freddie.
