In response to:

Paul Ryan’s Budget Is a Moral Budget

Winston Smith quite accurately wrote the following, and it is worth repeating. Becausee there is a false dichotomy between the horrors perpetrated by the Democrats and the actions (not words) of Republicans. They are NOT opposites, contrary to most people's implicit assumptions. Here is what Winston wrote: "Paul Ryan's "morality": Paul Ryan: CISPA TARP Auto Bailouts Stimulus 2008 ADDITIONAL Stimulus 2009 Debt ceiling hikes Compr. immigration reform without amnesty (AMNESTY) Socialized employment (extending UC) Socialized education (No Child Left Behind) Socialized medicine Socialized housing (Section 8 vouchers) Head Start 4th shattering "Patriot" Act NDAA Nation-building MORE nation-building H.R. 347 (protest chilling)

Rep. Paul Ryan, (R-Wis), chairman of the House budget committee, provoked some angry push back when he claimed that not only is his proposed sweeping revamp of the US budget fiscally sound but also morally sound.

In a CBN interview, Ryan said he draws inspiration from his Catholic faith.

He argues that Catholic priority for caring for the poor should focus on helping folks move out of poverty. “…..don’t make people dependent on government so they stay stuck in their station in life, help people get out of poverty out onto life of independence.”

Catholics criticizing Ryan don’t see it this...
