Ryan to WH: Any day now with that budget, really, feel free

posted at 8:21 pm on March 6, 2013 by Erika Johnsen

House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan is all set to unveil the GOP’s budget proposal next week, which he’s hinting will be more ambitious than last year’s with its plan to balance the budget in just ten years, but says is still very doable:

House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) said the budget he will unveil next week will make only “modest policy changes’’  in the conservative blueprint the House approved last year even though he is now  aiming for a much more ambitious goal:  balancing the budget in 10 years.

“I wouldn’t expect any big surprises,’’ Mr. Ryan told reporters Wednesday. …

Mr. Ryan plans to release his budget resolution Tuesday and the Budget Committee will approve it Wednesday, sending it to the House floor for a vote the following week. The Senate Budget Committee is expected to act along a similar timeline to draft Democrats’ budget alternative. …

I’m sure we’ll have plenty of opportunity to hear all about how draconian and granny-cliff-tossing the entire proposal is next week, but this year’s process might be the first time in years that Democrats actually present a concrete alternative plan of their own, gasp! Even if it does nothing to fix our current fiscal insanity, at least they’re finally ready to abide by their legal duties, so that’s something, I guess.

From the executive branch, however, still no sign of that little ol’ budget the White House was supposed to produce by the first Monday in February. Via Politico:

“I find it interesting that he’s chosen to blow the deadline again, not only by a week or two, which is what we’ve seen in the past, but for an indefinite period of time and waiting for others to lead first,” Ryan said.

“The person in the White House ought to lead. That’s what presidents are supposed to do,” Ryan said. “And by delaying your budget for an indefinite period of time, [it] shows that there’s just not a seriousness of purpose to actually fixing our budget problems.”

Obama has missed four out of his five budget deadlines, and we’re supposed to believe that sequestration held them up? Riiiiight.

Ryan has laid low (post election) long enough – we need his voice – his knowledge and his leadership – badly.

Mr Ryan – COME BACK !!!!

FY 2013 Revenues: $2.708 Trillion (as projected by the CBO)

FY 2007 Outlays: $2.729 Trillion (as reported by the OMB)

If FY 2013 Outlays had been capped to FY 2007 dollar levels (the last budget passed by a Republican House, Republican Senate, and Republican President), and if the CBO Revenue projections for FY 2013 are correct, then the deficit in FY 2013 would have only been $21 Billion.

$2.708T Revenue
- $2.729T Spending
——————–
= -$0.021T (Deficit of only $0.021 Trillion, or $21 Billion)

We don’t have a revenue problem.
We have a spending problem.

Democrat majorities sent spending and deficits through the roof.

FY 2013 spending (outlays) is up about 40% from FY 2007.

Start with the FY 2007 budget as the “baseline”, and we would be very, very close to a balanced budget RIGHT NOW, not 10 years from now.

According to Breitbart, the house passed a CR that included funding for Obamacare, with overwhelming support from GOPe. Of the thirty that sent the letter to Boehner asking that he defund O-care in the CR, only 14 actually voted against the CR.

GOPe will betray has betrayed you.

Why is Paul Ryan not filibustering?

Wait.

Perhaps he is just as real a conservative as the Governor of Virginia.

Not at all in other words.

If you do not know he ran on no new taxes then signed the highest taxes into law in the history of Virginia while also implementing Obama Care Medicare Entitlement which he also ran against.

But stupid Virginia lets him do anything he wants as he can NOT be reelected.

Because Paul Ryan is a Representative in the House, not a Senator in the Senate.

Jake, you nailed it. I always thought Ryan should have been the GOP presidential nominee. He would have been a great leader.

ITguy on March 6, 2013 at 8:42 PM

+1000

Unless Ryan is now proposing a REALLY new drastic budget plan, which I seriously doubt, I don’t think we’ll get balanced anytime soon. His last proposal was only, oh, measly TRILLION DOLLARS A YEAR SHORT of balance. I know calculators are not in vogue lately, but I promise to buy Ryan, our best numbers guy in Congress, a really nice calculator if he then promises to actually understand there is a HUGE difference between his proposed $400 Billion per year cut and a $1.4 TRILLION PER YEAR deficit. Its called a chasm. Its truly a sad day when the best financial mind on Congress thinks that $1 TRILLION PER YEAR deficit is somehow sustainable.

He’s a hack with liberal voting record. Its not what people say that defines them, its what they do. Ryan is just a talker…
