I hate to use the one word sentence thing, but it seems everyone in the media seems to be forgetting in this budget battle is that the Ryan Budget Proposal doesn't balance, doesn't reduce the national debt, and doesn't lead to a budget surplus like we had in the 1990's.

Why in God's name should we adopt this proposal when IT DOES NOT BALANCE. We can't begin to talk about a "balanced budget" with the GOP proposal actually not balancing.

Let's use Ryan's own numbers. Here is the Ryan budget, neatly summed up in a table from Ryan's Budget Committee website:



Know why? Because Ryan's budget CUTS TAXES FOR THE RICH.

Rinse and repeat that Democrats.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
