  1. republican budget.these guys are funny. they bash obama for deficit spending but in their own budget they concede its impossible to do. if they eliminate medicare and cut social security in half they need 50 years to get to a balanced budget. i dont think the tea party geezers are going to be happy when they realize what the republicans are up to. cut their benefits and let military spending go unchecked:

    "In all the Ryan budget plan dubbed the "Roadmap for America's Future" would take the deficit from 11 percent of gross domestic product in 2009 to 4.8 percent in 2030 and 2.6 percent in 2050. The Congressional Budget Office shows the GOP plan would end the deficit around 2060 and they would produce a surplus of 6 percent of gross domestic product by 2083."
