In subtle ways, Ryan’s budget acknowledges the results of November’s election. He isn’t seeking to do away with tax increases that have already been approved, and he accepts that tax revenue will be 19.1 percent of the economy in a decade, up from the 18.7 percent he assumed last year.
But otherwise, he continues to peddle the same ideas: the partial privatization of Medicare; a 10 percent reduction in the federal workforce; and cuts to Medicaid, food stamps, education, job training and farm programs.

The American people are grateful that Mitt Romney‘s secret feelings about “47 Percent” of us were exposed. Yesterday, I heard Mitt Romney say that the video of him speaking (about the middle and lower classes), does not contain his true feelings. No. Mitt, in the video you speak without pause or hesitation, but with sincere conviction. I believe you were telling rich, white people who the racist or elite feelings you were expressing made you one of them: People who believed the things that you were saying about themselves. Your plan was to identify with these rich donors and get them to write big checks for your doomed campaign.
If you missed seeing and hearing the “secret video” of Mitt Romney, here it is again, and thanks to Mother Jones Magazine:
Mitt Romney’s “47 Percent” Comments
Mitt Romney, the people believe you were speaking how you truly felt. You said yesterday, “I wish I’d used different words…” Mitt different words would still have presented how you really feel or they would be lies. ”We, the People” voted accordingly last November. It is pathetic that your running partner, Paul Ryan, was so affected by losing that, months later, he continues to act like the election did not happen. Yesterday he present the Ryan Budget, Version 3.0, which is almost like his preceding budgets. In Paul’s mind they are new. Analysts do not share his delusion. Mitt, did your losing scar this poor boy for life? So, it is true: ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES! —GoodOleWoody
I just watched Paul Ryan on “Meet the Press“. Ryan is a smart man. It’s quite clear when you hear him talk. [I think he likes to hear himself talk.] But, I digress. Paul answered moderator, David Gregory‘s question with highfalutin talk encumbered by his brand of rhetoric and code words. Does this guy think he’s an ivy league professor addressing his elite students? Is he a wanna be? As I tried to understand Paul Ryan’s answers, I felt that he could be talking like in this video:
