Path to Prosperity
America has got to change course
Okay, I have not had a rant for quite a while on here, so here I go for those of you who give a rat’s behind, what I think. The bottom line for me is this:
America has got to change course. The tea party members have been screaming at Washington to curb spending for months now. The liberal citizens seemingly do not understand the ramifications of NOT taking this serious. Obama is proposing $400 billion in additional spending. The democrats have NOT had a constitutionally mandated budget for two years now. We are heading for a huge economical mess. Our federal budget deficit has skyrocketed to a projected - $1.65 trillion! It is now time to take a serious look where the tire meets the road. The future of our country is in a serious threat.
Wisconsin Rep, Paul Ryan, the House Budget Committee Chairman has proposed a budget that will put our nation on a course, a very badly needed course. One that will return us to a path of hope.
(remember that hope and change thing we was promised)
The left is calling this radical. I agree! It is very radical. I think radical is exactly what we need at this point and time. We can no longer look the other way, and let the next generation fix this mess. The time is NOW. Leadership is so vital, and Obama is not offering any real leadership. He has all but run away from facing this problem. His proposed budget more than doubles the national debt!
Simply acting as if we are NOT in trouble and continuing to spend, spend, spend is ludicrous. Democrats are on the defense and will demonize anything that does not fit into their agenda.
“Robbing from the poor” and “giving to the rich”.
“Taking away Medicare from the elderly”
Remember, Ryan hates poor people and the sick & elderly. Those who would consider such a bill are just plain evil.
As I understand it, Ryan’s plan will take on our massive spending and attack government waste. It will at the least open the can of worms that EVERYONE in Washington has been afraid to open. Entitlement programs can no longer continue at its current pace. Medicare and Medicaid will be transformed from being out of control to a sustainable program to benefit the way they were intended. Those 55 and older will not see any changes. Those who will retire 10 years from now will have a new premium-support program where all new retiree’s will have a fixed government contribution to the health plan of his or her choice. This is similar to the system that Members of Congress have.
These health plans and providers will be in competition for these new retirees “dollars”, reducing costs and increasing patient care. The way it should work. Medicaid will undergo similar measures, with more of the private industry and each State having more control and flexibility to design their programs to better serve those in need.
It also takes entitlement programs off of the autopilot and forces Congress to look at what is being spent.
He is introducing changes to our ancient budget process. Rejecting government dependence, and restoring this nation’s prosperity. ObamaCare WILL be repealed. These are just a few things that will be looked at and refurbished. America MUST change its course, and Conservative leadership cannot sit back and wait. Those who have the courage to stand up and support this type of RADICAL agenda will in my eyes be modern day patriots. Those who wimper and sit idle will never get my vote.
This is just MY rant and MY opinion, based upon my reading. I have gathered most of my information from various websites, and through the heritage foundation.
I have a hard enough time trying to understand WHAT is going on in Washington most of the time. This morning I have taken on the task to TRY to wrap my brain around this Ryan Bill. What I see and read, it is going to be a landmark bill, one that is going to open the eyes and start a real debate for the future of this Nation. For the first time in a long while, I am excited about what is happening in our Capital.
