The Heritage Foundation has written very favorably of the Ryan budget proposal, which “for the first time in recent memory, sets our nation on a different and better path. It tackles the massive spending excesses of the recent past and the entitlement crisis that is beginning to command our fiscal future. It rejects the politics of government dependence, massively higher taxes and the inevitability of national decline.”
His budget “pares back non-security discretionary spending -- the small part of the budget that Congress actually writes a budget for -- and tackles other parts of the budget such as farm subsidies and the federal bureaucracy.”
It also repeals Obamacare, the federal government’s invasion of the nation’s health care system which has given America the world’s finest health care system.
“Most crucially,” Heritage notes, “Ryan’s budget tackles entitlement programs with transformative changes in Medicare and a solid approach to controlling Medicaid’s spiraling costs. These changes will result in a stronger and bigger economy with more job creation, more savings and investment, and higher household incomes.”
As Heritage has pointed out, America desperately needs to change course: “Our current direction is fiscally and economically unsustainable and politically and culturally bankrupting. It is threatening the well-being and future of our country.”
Congress need to get off the dime and pass Ryan’s budget before the nation drowns in an ocean of red ink.
