Ryan proposes to slash federal spending by $5.3 trillion over the next decade compared with President Obama’s latest budget blueprint, with the biggest savings taken from health programs – including the repeal of Obama’s initiative to expand health coverage to the uninsured – and entitlements for the poor.
In an op-ed published Tuesday in the Wall Street Journal, Ryan argued that the plan offers “real spending discipline”.
Paul Ryan’s Op-Ed:
It does this not through indiscriminate cuts that endanger our military, but by ending the epidemic of crony politics and government overreach that has weakened confidence in the nation’s institutions and its economy. And it strengthens the safety net by returning power to the states, which are in the best position to tailor assistance to their specific populations
Each of these people running for president have all given their various ideas and reforms that perfectly jive with and are consistent with what we’re proposing
But the Whitehouse is lashing out.
“The House budget once again fails the test of balance, fairness, and shared responsibility,”
“It would shower the wealthiest few Americans with an average tax cut of at least $150,000, while preserving taxpayer giveaways to oil companies and breaks for Wall Street hedge fund managers. ”
