Earlier today, Congressman Paul Ryan, Chairman of the House Budget Committee presented the Republican Party's plan to cut spending by over $6.2 trillion in a ten-year period.
President Obama immediately went on live television to discuss the plan. It’s no surprise that the President doesn't seem to like much about a proposal that will reduce the Democrat's out of control spending.
I have been reviewing the document since its release – and so far, several of Congressman Ryan's ideas, are ideas that I have been advocating for many months. I am especially pleased that the proposal provides for streamlining many government agencies and REPEALING OBAMACARE.
It’s doubtful the House’s proposal will be passed in its current form, and it’s unlikely that this one proposal will be the ultimate solution to all of our economic problems. But Congressman Ryan's proposal is certainly a start – one that I support as a small step to restoring fiscal sanity and reducing the size of government.
