House Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) called the proposal “modest,” and blasted conservative groups he said “came out opposed to it before they ever saw it.” And maybe they did. But in their defense, the Ryan budget fraud is even worse after you take the time to read it.
Have you ever wondered why so many liberal "Republicans" are so hell-bent on alienating people in their party who actually believe in Republican values and principles? Well, it seems that old saying "follow the money" is as true as ever, and true of what passes for "Republicans" these days.
Speaker of the House John Boehner's apparent indignation that conservatives don't like what they're hearing about the latest sellout to the Democrats would be laughable if the subject weren't so serious. When we're cutting a paltry $22 billion from a deficit of a trillion or more, it's a drop in the bucket! We're cutting the annual deficit by a whopping 2.2%, and doing nothing about the $17 TRILLION in debt.
It is sad that in these times when the government can so easily be controlled by a mere plurality of interests, and where all the different so-called “checks and balances” provided by the Constitution fail to prevent something as blatantly destructive to American liberty as Obamacare from becoming law, there still is no escape route for those of us living on the mainland. To borrow a phrase from a Cuban refugee who was speaking to Ronald Reagan, “If we lose freedom here, there’s no place to escape to—this is the last stand on Earth.”
Marriage is under assault in the United States like never before. Who hasn't read the headlines about homosexual activists not only insisting on counterfeiting marriage, but trying to leverage the power of government to force Christians to participate in the counterfeiting of marriage. But homosexuals weren't the once who started the attack on marriage.
"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
