Rep Ryan Leads with Budget Alternatives

This week's GOP address is brought to us by Rep Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, a rising star and common sense, fiscally conservative Republican.

The Democratic leadership in the House - Speaker Nancy Pelosi - has decided to not even submit a budget this year. That decision has not been implemented in Washington in decades - there's your hope and change. This is also the same leadership that claimed to be implementing PAYGO and eliminating fraud and waste in government spending.

We'll just keep hoping.

“Republicans on the budget committee have already identified $1.3 trillion in specific spending cuts we would implement right now to make Washington do more with less and help small businesses put people back to work,” said Rep. Ryan.

Continued proposals by the GOP and false claims by President Obama that there are no alternative ideas being presented by Republicans come to the forefront. It's a shame the first of Obama's campaign pledges to be broken was the one about a post-partisan administration. Our country is the worse for it.
