    indeed. if you want an "over the top" plan, go look at what Rand Paul is putting out. that's a hard-hitting budget. The Ryan Plan is phased and takes place slowly over a period of time.

    I guess the Vice President of the United States doesn't think it's a big F---ing deal.

    No, in point of fact we do not need an extreme plan. We just need a good one. An extreme plan has a very large potential to make things worse without intending to. When you do too much, too fast, you will always have nasty unintended consequences. Ryan's plan, which claimed to be revenue neutral(while shifting taxes from the wealthy to those less wealthy when you read the details), raised health care costs on every one in the country, and still took over 20 years to balance the budget was extreme. Extremely bad. Republicans knew it would not pass, and did not try and work for a plan that actually could pass. It was a pure PR stunt.

    Being negotiated. It makes no sense practically or politically to put out a plan that cannot pass.

    Really? I've heard nothing of this wonderful Democratic plan that has a chance at bi-partisan support. Perhaps you could provide a link to it?

    That dumb comment doesn't even fit in here. What does that have to do with the budget?

    Maybe Willie Nelson sent these Killer D's a case of whiskey with a note that read, "Stand your ground."
