The Best Budget Plan? Not Ryan's (!!)

BUDGET plan, not SocSec/Medicare plan.

....Six think tanks submitted long-term budget plans to Peterson and they were all scored by Barry Anderson, former Acting Director of the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) and Eric Toder and Jim Nunns of the Tax Policy Center. Not all of the organizations used the same economic and budgeting models, but the scorekeepers did ensure that the think tanks budget claims were “fair and objective.

The results?

The Heritage Foundation’s Saving the American Dream plan not only cuts taxes to 18.5% of GDP, it balances the budget faster than any of the other budget plans.

S'pose that the Congress will simply adopt it? That Obozo will sign it?

I didn't think so.
