After being thoroughly routed by taxes and spending, the Republicans, led by Representative Paul Ryan have set upon a bold plan of “balancing” the Federal budget--in TEN YEARS. Although the Repubs insist that the “tax issue” has been settled, Dems confidently assert that any new budget plan will include “revenues”, ie. TAXES.
Just like the bully who says he will only steal your lunch money once, he will kep coming back until you stand up to him. The R’s are on the run.
Ryan also came up with an embarrassing gimmick of “withholding” congressional salary until the Senate passes a budget--something they have failed to do, in violation of law, for 4-years. Not only is this idea unconstitutional (Amendment XXVII: No law, varying the compensation for the services of the Senators and Representatives, shall take effect, until an election of representatives shall have intervened,)
but the Senate will oblige and pass a budget with More spending, More tax increases, with No reduction in spending.
Once again the Republicans will be punked and humiliated.
