Be serious: GOPers dismiss Obama's fiscal cliff offer, only to present us (again) with Paul Ryan's cruel plan
House Speaker John Boehner and his Republican colleagues have laughed off President Obama’s 'fiscal cliff' offer, but as usual, they have nothing substantial to replace it with. We've witnessed this through the health care debate and pretty much with every issue.
Here's their 'plan.'
The Paul Ryan budget. You know, the guy we didn't vote for that stood by the losing candidate, Mitt Romney's side. Yes, that one.
Paul Ryan's plan:
"Ryan’s budget isn’t courageous — it’s just cruel. Three-fifths of the cuts he wants would hit those with low incomes, while those who have the most would continue getting more. It’s no wonder the former altar boy has had his knuckles rapped by a group of nuns for peddling a budget that “rejects church teaching about solidarity, inequality, the choice for the poor, and the common good.” http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/katrina-vanden-heuvel-paul-ryan-cruel-not-courageous/2012/08/14/a2dbd388-e56b-11e1-936a-b801f1abab19_story.html
And that is the Republican plan to better the economy and steer us off that foreboding fiscal cliff -- if you're a higher earner -- while tossing the middle class right off the ledge. Ah, good times....
Merry Christmas to you too John Boehner.
