    Ryan does not learn from his mistakes ...

    His "new" budget plan = his old plan ... let's examine his repeated blunders:
    1. NO CUTS IN DEFENSE - despite ending two needless wars and exposing trillions in waste, he cannot see how we can save a dime? Last time I checked, we won WWII yet we insist on having "occupation" troops in Germany and Japan??? I also verified that the USSR ceased to exist a quarter century ago yet we have and are building cold-war era weapons systems based on "theatre" nuclear wars in western Europe ... Ryan can't visualize any cuts????
    2. More tax cuts for the super-rich - in the face of decades of evidence of the utter failure of "trickle-down" economics, Ryan wants to decrease marginal rates from 39.6% to 25% under the "big lie" guise of ending some loopholes ... nice try ...
    3. ALL of his cuts come from safety-net programs and draconian cuts in entitlements ... 100%+ on the backs of the poor and middle class ... and he actually believes we are dumb enough not to see this ... SSI is solvent for decades and can easily be adjusted by increasing the cap for contributions ... his voucher scheme has long been proven as an empty sham ... say you are 65 with cancer and chronic heart disease that has cost $15,000/yr to treat ... how many ins cos will provide coverage for your $7,000 coupon??? ... my guess is their premiums will be substantially higher than $150,000 ...
