The GOP's Bizarro World Budget

The GOP House budget put together by Republican Vice-Presidential nominee Rep. Paul Ryan is a travesty. If you earn less than a million dollars a year, it will cost you $2,000 per year, but millionaires will get a tax break of more than a hundred grand on income tax alone! Plus you know they'll gut all of our other sources of revenue, capital gains and estate taxes, for instance. They promise to kill Medicare, kick the cost of Medicaid down to our bankrupt states, and they can't wait to give the Social Security Trust Fund itself straight over to the Wall Street bankers. They want to dramatically increase military spending on vastly expensive systems to fight the extinct Soviets, while it actually reduces the funding for the type of light, flexible forces needed to fight the threats we actually face in this century. We cannot let this happen.
