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.
Public Radio International’s Todd Zwillich pointed out that Republicans lost the presidency, House seats and the combined popular vote in House races. “People outside this process might wonder if elections have consequences,” Zwillich said.

OVER THE TOP
TO WIN RE-ELECTION!
WILL PROSPER AGAIN!
Are you tired of the sound of sonic booms? You do know what they are, don’t you? It’s the sound of Mitt Romney FLIP FLOPPING, changing what little mind he may have, on this issue and that issue. Sunday, he was pro-Obamacare. Monday he denounced it. Yesterday, Mitt revamped his campaign and, guess what: He for Obamacare…again! Is he also pro-gay, pro-releasing tax returns, anti-Mitch McConnell or pro raising taxes on the rich? Bring me the head of the real Mitt Romney! Once we joked about Mitt Romney’s willingness to say anything to get elected: It just depends on the news weather vane. We asked why a man, who has no core, would think he could be elected president? What have his advisers been telling him these last seven years? Should we blame them for MITT ROMNEY DANCING WITH THE DEVIL? —G.O.W.
