Would Paul Ryan budget raise middle class taxes? No way to say.

Here’s the first thing you need to know about Paul Ryan’s budget, which was released this morning: Ryan appears to have shrewdly taken two important steps that allow him to avoid the political pitfalls that bedeviled Mitt Romney’s campaign tax plans last year. In so doing, he has made it impossible to determine whether his budget would raise taxes on the middle class to pay for tax cuts on the rich — as experts claimed about the Romney plan.

This comes by way of Roberton Williams, a senior tax expert at the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center — the same outfit, you may recall, that set off a bomb during Campaign 2012 by demonstrating that there was no way Romney’s tax plan could pay for itself without targeting some middle class loopholes.

....Ryan and Republicans, of course, will insist that they would cut taxes for the middle class, just as Romney did during the campaign. But there’s no way — as during 2012 — to know whether this is feasible until the plan’s details and targets are nailed down with more specificity.

And so, in yet another sense, we’re back where we were during the 2012 campaign. Indeed, we’ve reverted somewhat. At least we could determine whether Romney’s proposed tax cuts for the rich could be paid for without targeting the middle class — they couldn’t. In the case of the new Ryan budget, it cuts taxes on the rich, and vows to pay for it through tax reform — but it’s impossible to say, based on what we know now, whether this can be done without targeting the middle class.

Good thing we had an election to sort all this stuff out.

Liberals/Democrats have argued that the reason the Great Depression lasted as long as it did is simply that FDR didn’t Spend/Tax enough!! Well their philosophy has been prove Wrong by Clinton, JFK, and Reagan, Reducing Taxes, Reduce Spending, Reform Welfare not only stimulates the Economy but create Robust Economic Growth!!

WASHINGTON (Reuters)- Not everybody can say they met with the president of the United States. And hardly anybody can say they piloted their own 747 airliner halfway around the world to get to the meeting.

So it was noteworthy that the Sultan of Brunei Hassanal Bolkiah, known for his vast oil wealth, sat down for talks with President Barack Obama in the Oval Office on Tuesday.

"His Majesty himself has led his country for 40 years now and he's gone through nine U.S. presidents. I won't ask him which one was his favorite," quipped Obama.

Shirley you jest eh? The Reverend Wright operates a 5000 member church in Chicago that many of that cities political figures attend. United Church of Christ iirc.

In the political arena of the 80's and 90's Wright was not fit to carry Reed's briefcase around___Reed delivered millions of born again yayhoo's to the Republican party where they remain and in many states have advanced to the point where knuckleheads like Bachmann, Cruz etc. are shoo ins on election day.

When I saw Reed standing on stage with Bab's and GHWB during the RNC I knew that the Republican party had purchased a one way ticket to shtsville.

Liar. Obamacare is paid for.
The only way Ryan plans to save money from repealing it would be to keep parts of that revenue generation.
The savings from Medicare is tied to Obamacare. The hospitals would not agree to lower medicare payments without the 30 million new paying customers.
Besides,. Paul Ryan takes 700 billion out of Medicare in his plan - by making senior citizens pay more.
The government accountability office says you're full of sht dave.

No, Obamacare doesn't make everybody pay for health care. Liberal parasites with low incomes STILL won't pay for health care, that's why you lefties like it.
Doctors have to pay over $100,000/year in malpractice insurance. Ask one next time you go in. Who pays for that? The people that see him for health care.
Recently Merck Pharm was sued because a few fat middle-aged smokers had heart attacks after taking Vioxx. They got a couple billion in a class action-- who pays? The people that buy drugs from Merck.
I put $700/month into a health savings account, about the same as I would pay in health insurance. In a year, I have over $8K. In ten years, that's almost $100K with modest investment growth. Since I've been doing it for 30 years, I can afford just about any procedure I need. And any money I don't use is passed down to my children. Try to do that with an insurance policy.
See, there are many solutions to problems if you take responsibility for yourself. But that's not the Liberal Way. You lefties like to blow your paycheck on bass boats and beer, then when something bad happens you want a corporation (or the ubiquitous Evil Rich Guy) to blame and a gubbermint program to make it all better.
I for one am getting damned tired of bailing out you parasites. Liberals are pathetic, I wish you would grow up.
You are wasting your time. I have been trying to tell them this for years. They are brain dead libtards and they don't care. They think it is their right to have someone else pay for tsorry ass!

1) Currently the poor have Medicaid.
So who is uninsured? The working poor that can't afford it & some by choice.
Obamacare will get the majority of these either insured or paying fines into the system.
Those making over 133% of the poverty line will have to pay part of their insurance.
And really, Isn't the yearly limit for a HSA is around $3100? & wouldn't that make you a liar?
And really, you plan no health problems for you or our family. One serious issue & you become one of the people you are b*tching about.
No it is $6000 a year tax free for a family of 4. You can put as much as you want it's just not tax free.
