House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) today unveiled his latest budget proposal, which would cut spending by $5.1 trillion over 10 years and repeal the Affordable Care Act. Democrats were quick to decry cuts to Medicare and other social safety nets, but perhaps Ryan’s most vocal critic was not a Democrat but Sarah Palin, who took Ryan to task in a lengthy Facebook post, which read in part:
The latest Ryan (R, Wisconsin) Budget is not an April Fool’s joke. But it really IS a joke because it is STILL not seeing the problem; it STILL is not proposing reining in wasteful government overspending TODAY, instead of speculating years out that some future Congress and White House may possibly, hopefully, eh-who-knows, take responsibility for today’s budgetary selfishness and shortsightedness to do so. THIS is the definition of insanity.
The solution is staring us in the face. We need to rein in spending today, and don’t tell me there is nothing to cut when we know every omnibus bill is loaded with pork and kickbacks.
Yea or nay?
