Ryan Defends "The Deal"

Paul Ryan is working to get "The Deal" passed. He says that it's '...going in our direction.'


If we simply kept spending at current levels, by their definition of "cuts" that would save nearly $400 billion in the next few years, versus the $25 billion the Budget Control Act claims to "cut". It would only take us 5 years to "cut" $1 trillion, in Washington math, just by holding the line on spending. That is hardly austere or catastrophic. --Ron Paul

IOW, Paul's using "DC Mind-Math" to claim that it's "in our direction."

To his credit, Ryan will NOT attack the TEA Party people. FWIW, I think Ryan's a helluvalot better than most of the 'critters. But geeez........$25Bn?
