Welcome, ladies and gentlemen to the 113th running of that spectacle known as Congress, where the Republicans once again show up prepared to compete with new information, proposals, and ideas, and the Democrats...well, they're sort of there too, I guess, or at least that's the rumor. Demagogues, start your engines!

The flaw in your statement is thinking the outcomes are different. Democrats have no budget and spend more than they tax. Republicans have a budget and spend more than they tax.

Same coin, different sides.

Yesterday, Paul Ryan, Republican Chairman of the House Budget Committee, unveiled his plan that would balance the federal budget within one decade. Considering that the nation’s debt (not including the huge future cost of major entitlement programs) is now approaching $17 trillion, one might think political leaders in Washington, D.C. would consider such a proposal. On the Democratic side of the aisle, however, there is no interest whatsoever in taking such a constructive approach.

Democrats in both houses of the Congress and the Obama Administration, along with many media-based pundits, began to loudly criticize the Ryan proposal even before it...
