The Budget

Paul Ryan wants to reduce spending and simplify the tax code (leaving us with only two tax brackets) in order to balance the budget. His plan cuts spending by 4.6 trillion over the next ten years.
The Democrats want to raise a trillion in taxes by closing "tax loopholes" on the "country's highest income earners" and spending another hundred billion on "stimulus".

My taxes have already gone up once this year due to all the BS going on in Washington. If they go and muck around in the tax code I'm pretty certain that my taxes are going to go up again - and I'm not exactly a high income earner.

And for the stimulus... If stimulus was the solution to the economy's woes then we probably wouldn't have needed two stimuluses, and this third one would be entirely redundant. Since stimulus isn't the solution, it can only be taken as an excuse to spend more money.

The Democrat plan will just make us miserable while doing the government equivalent an individual setting a gold-covered Hummer filled with hundred dollar bills and napalm on fire, and then trying to put it out by throwing buckets of hundred dollar bills at it.

Let us all vote for fiscally responsible Representatives and Senators in the next election.
