    House GOP Unveils Blueprint To Slash Medicaid, Medicare And Repeal Obamacare

    Paul Ryan rolled out his latest budget proposal, offering an ambitious blueprint that promises to balance the budget in a decade by repealing President Barack Obama's health care reforms and slashing Medicare, Medicaid and programs to help the poor.

    Who does this fool think he is kidding? He is a lamestream impotent republican. Never had a real job his entire life. Was the recipient of Social Security Funds since his childhood. Has been sucking off th gov't, in one way or another, since that time. When will be stop being a maker and not a taker?

    Yep. Obama has a better plan; just keep on borrowing and spending, since we need more income redistribution.

    I realize it's a difficult concept to grasp, but we need to be fiscally solvent in order to insure that we can even survive. Since over half the budget goes for social welfare programs, in one form or another, it's logical to make some cuts there.

    I didn't support either of these military actions, but at least defense and warfare are constitutional expenditures. As for nation-building, I am adamantly opposed to it.

    With over $1 Trillion in "welfare" checks made out to the Defense Department for their pet projects like Aircraft Carriers and Missiles destined to be fired nowhere, I know of a far better place to start.

    We've already started there, in case you missed it.

    Hardly. The "Sequester" split 109 Billion in cuts 50/50 between military and non-military. So, $54.5B makes hardly a dent in the total military budget.

    The real question should be why we need to spend half our budget on defense when no one is even threatening us.

    The real question should be why we need to spend half our budget on defense when no one is even threatening us.
    "Two decades later, America is entering another round of deep defense cuts. As Washington debates "sequestration'' — automatic budget cuts that threaten to slash $600 billion from the Pentagon budget by 2023, beginning March 1 — the defense industry, and cities that depend on it, know sequestration isn't even half the problem.

    Add in another $487 billion, 10-year defense cut in 2011's debt-ceiling legislation. The end of wars in Iraq and Afghanistan mean the separate budget for that, once $160 billion annually, now $88.5 billion, will wind down, too. Altogether, a budget that peaked at $716.3 billion in 2012 has dropped to a requested $701.8 billion this year and is set to hit $589 billion by 2014.

    It could go much lower with sequestration, although still well above the $294 billion spent in 2000. That's about $392 billion in today's dollars."
    Defense budget cuts hit businesses, localities

    Where is the Democrats' effort to balane the budget in x-number of years? Oh, I forgot, they're too chicken-**** to put one out there. Oh, wait! I forgot again! They're putting one out there that will raise taxes by $1 trillion and never balance the budget. Oops. Senate Democrats prepare to roll out budget blueprint - The Washington Post
