Conservatism is Dead - The GOP Ryan Plan grows the already massive Federal Government by 3.4% a year
- How is that "small government" Republican Party working out for you?
I am sitting here alone on the Internet. All of my small Constitutional government political heroes are dead - John Adams, Edmund Randolph, Alexander Hamilton, Daniel Webster, John Quincy Adams. Gone, all gone.
The U.S. has moved so far to the left that today what passes for small government "Conservatism" is nothing more than moderate Socialism.
Those "small government" Conservative Republicans in the House of Representatives proposed a plan that pretends to balance the Federal budget in 10 years. Never mind that not one single penny will be cut from the budget.
The Paul Ryan plan would cut the projected growth in annual spending from 5 percent to 3.4 percent. Though he wants to repeal the health care law, he also proposes to use the $716 billion that the law would cut from Medicare to help reduce the deficit. Love that math.
Ryan claims his budget would save $1.8 trillion over the decade by repealing the health care law, a virtual impossibility as long as Obama remains president and Democrats control the Senate..
Republicans cheered the proposal.
"I’m very comfortable with where his budget is and where it’s going," said Rep. Dave Camp, R-Mich., the chairman of the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee, noting that he had input into the tax portions of the Ryan budget. "I think we’re very much in sync with that."
