View Full Version : GOP Budget not nearly enough

The House passed a GOP budget that spends $3.6Trillion next year and over the NEXT TEN YEARS reduces the annual deficit from $1.3 Trillion to $287 Billion. In other words, the GOP commits to ten more years of catastrophic debt accumulation.

And for those of you who kind of like Ron Paul's domestic policy but dug in your heels over his foreign policy, this latest Ryan budget proposes to spend $554 Billion on DoD next year, a mere 10% more than proposed in Paul's plan to cut a full $1Trillion in Year One and fully balance the budget in four years.

So, this begs the question: Are you serious about changing this country's catastrophic debt trajectory? You are laying the groundwork for an election where you will be asked to choose between driving off the financial cliff at 100 mph or only 75 mph. The end result is the same. Or, will you choose to make a real difference for your country?

If you continue, some will eventually listen. :thumbsup:

My reps have been hearing from me- early and often- about the lunacy of throwing two nickles at it and calling it good .... :upeyes:

One thing is exceedingly clear: Ron Paul detractors who throw their support behind either Santorum or Romney support deficit spending.

Just a conservative amount though.

WRONG!

When will you figure out that it's NOT an all or nothing situation?

Just because someone refuses to accept Ron Paul's fairy tale constitutional utopia doesn't mean they support deficit spending, big government or hate America.

It simply means they believe Ron Paul isn't the only one who can turn this country around.
In fact as president, Ron Paul would accomplish nothing he so passionately proclaims.

America's best interests lie in more capable and competent hands.

Evidently the majority of the republican primary voters agree with me.
They can't all support deficit spending or big government.

OK, who is going to turn America around, JB?

At this point going from an annual deficit of $1.3 Trillion to $287 Billion would be a miracle and it WOULD make a difference. Deficits aren't necessarily a bad thing, it's when they exceed a certain percentage of the GDP that they start dragging the economy down.

Actually it is dead-balls accurate. Either of your leading candidates will do nothing to decrease the RATE OF GROWTH of the federal government in any meaningful way, let alone actually SHRINK it. The Ryan budget is pretty clear evidence of that.

Ahhhh, you, like most progressives and neocons fail to look a bit more deeply into the issue.

You are absolutely correct that if you took a poll of Republican voters the vast majority would be in favor of cutting spending and shrinking government.....until you point out the facts and ask the tough questions!

What are they?

Fact: The 4 drivers of deficit spending are Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and DOD. Period. End of story. Tell those Republican voters you're going to dramatically cut any of those (except maybe Medicaid in a certain %) and those republican voters will be outraged.

So, take comfort in the fact that you're just another progressive republican in the herd. You folks are complicit in driving the car off the cliff. You're wrong. They are all in support of deficit spending.

And you? You advocate for enlarging government yourself, right here on GT!:rofl:
