House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan of Wisconsin released this video ahead of next week’s FY2013 budget proposal, and judging from Ryan’s sober tone, it’s another serious attempt to set the ship of state on the path to prosperity, and away from the whirlpool of debt that threatens to suck us all under.
You know, I was here — in Congress — in 2008 when we had the economic crisis. It was a terrible time. Millions of people lost their jobs. Trillions of dollars of wealth: gone.
That crisis caught us by surprise.
Let me ask you a question: what if your President, your Senator and your Congressman knew it was coming? What if they knew when it was going to happen, why it was going to happen and more importantly, what if they knew what they needed to do to stop it from happening and they had the time to stop it? But they chose to do nothing about it, because it wasn’t good politics?
What would you think of that person? It would be immoral.
(Whoever could he be talking about?)
This coming debt crisis is the most predictable crisis we’ve ever had in this country. And look what’s happening.
This is why we’re acting. This is why we’re leading. This is why we’re proposing – and passing out of the House – a budget to fix this problem: so we can save our country for ourselves and our children’s future.
Of course, the reaction of the Democrats to another serious Republican proposal will be hysterics and rabid demagoguery.
Sunshine State Sarah says:
This is why the Left is so desperate to create distractions – to make this election about class warfare through the “Occupy” movement, getting a Georgetown law student/liberal activist to grossly exaggerate the cost of contraception to spark a “War on Women.” They know they have committed a gross malfeasance of duty, and that there is simply no way to explain away these numbers.
My prediction: over the next few months, we will see an endless parade of ridiculousness from the Left, as they attempt to stir up one false controversy after another, to dig up new strawmen to blame, new victims who will plead for mercy, claiming their only hope for relief is rescue by Uncle Sam’s checkbook.
Because Democrats don’t care about the country – they care about raw power – how to gain it, how to keep it.
The only way to save the country is to defeat them.
