    Technically a misquote. Colbert stated 'And reality has a well-known liberal bias.'

    Which you have persisted in avoiding…Why is that?
    Because that is just the unsubstantiated opinion of an anonymous internet dude, dude.

    Well, If you're going to quote someone it would help if you are accurate else it is a paraphrase. I'm sure if you ever say something noteworthy you will appreciate it when others quote you if they do it accurately.

    "The Ryan budget aspires to cut the budget deficit (as a share of the economy) from 8.7 percent of Gross Domestic Product, known as GDP, last year to 1.2 percent in 2022. That's the same 2022 deficit that the Congressional Budget Office estimates we would reach anyway if we made no significant legislative changes affecting the budget for the next 10 years (see office's "baseline" projections here).

    Policywise, of course, the Ryan budget aspires to pursue a path that's radically different from putting the budget on autopilot. Under current tax law (which calls for all of President Bush's tax cuts to expire at the end of this year), federal revenue would rise from a recession-depressed 15.4 percent of GDP last year to 21.2 percent in 2022. By contrast, the Ryan budget would hold revenue to 18.7 percent of GDP in 2022. Under current law, the Congressional Budget Office projects that federal outlays would fall from 24.1 percent of GDP last year to 22.4 percent in 2022. By contrast, the Ryan budget would cut spending to 19.8 percent of GDP in 2022."

    OH, I get it...the cool-aid prevents you from addressing the fact that your guy's budget is woefully worse so you continue to post up links to those who bash Ryan's budget. To be clear, I HATE both of them as neither address the debt until after I am dead!...but then what do I care...I will be DEAD!

    The experts state that Ryan's budget deficit over the next decade is bigger than the President's deficit over the same period, so your opinion is of no consequence to me.


    but then what do I care...I will be DEAD!
    Because with right wing libertarians, its all about them. Got it!
