Ryan's Plan: $4TN++ Deficit Reductions

That's a lot of National Debt, eh?

Rep. Paul Ryan, chairman of the House Budget committee, will propose fundamental reforms to Medicare and Medicaid in the GOP budget expected to be released Tuesday, implying in a Fox News Sunday interview that the deficit savings would exceed $4 trillion.

"We can't keep kicking this can down the road," Ryan said to Fox. "The president has punted. We're not going to follow suit."

He also said that the deficit reduction would exceed what President Obama’s fiscal commission proposed last year, which was $4 trillion.

I can hear the wailing from here. Ryan will be killing children and old people will have to eat dog food (again)

Two words Deek: "Death panels".

Stupid is an equal opportunity employer when it comes to crap political talking points.

Ah - but Struppster.... there are "Death Panels" in ObamaCare... they may not have blinking marquees stating it, but they are there... These are the boards that decide what drugs and treatments will be available to the masses based on costs - fashioned after the oxymoronic British "NICE" board.

Hope you don't get an aggressive cancer that needs a treatment that isn't approved. Because you can't pay cash for it either - just like Medicare.

What's a "death panel", Neomom, and why don't private insurers and health care providers have them?
