Paul Ryan's budget dubbed "The Path To Prosperity" has just been
passed by the Republican-controlled House of Representatives, setting the
stage for the two-year plan to roll into the Senate next week for a vote.
If it passes the Democrat-controlled Senate, the last phase of Ryan's plan will be at the desk
of Barack Obama, awaiting the president's signature to be placed on the bottom line.
squabbles between Democrats and Republicans caused the 16-day government
shutdown to occur last October, forcing the brilliant Mathematician,
Paul Ryan, to go to the drawing board and lay out a blueprint on how to
run the government for the next two years.
Ryan's newly-passed budget does the following:
Cuts government spending to protect hardworking taxpayers;
Tackles the drivers of our debt, so our troops don't pay the price for Washington's failure to take action;
Restores economic freedom and ensures a level playing
field for all by putting an end to special-interest favoritism and
Reverses the President's policies that drive up gas
prices, and instead promotes an all-of the-above strategy for unlocking
American energy production to help lower costs, create jobs, and reduce
dependence on foreign oil;
Strengthens health and retirement security by taking
power away from government bureaucrats and empowering patients instead
with control over their own care;
Reforms the broken tax code to spur job creation and
economic opportunity by lowering rates, closing loopholes, and putting
hardworking taxpayers ahead of special interests.
