    Switching gears to Paul Ryan after his BS session this morning and what Kerry/Dems will be facing from the republicans:

    Robert Greenstein of CBPP (Center on Budget & Policy Priority) was interviewed by Ezra Klein on upcoming budget concerns, dissects Paul Ryans new sham budget

    Ryans new budget proves Dems solutions work
    ..by employing those solutions to support his latest budget – the budget he touts will balance the budget in 10 years
     
    Robert Greenstein exposes Paul Ryans cooking the books and “obfuscation”
     • Ryans new budget includes the new revenues coming from taxes Ryan/republicans fought against (fiscal curb)
     • Ryan also uses currently diminishing deficit to bolster his “base line” projection
     • Ryan uses savings from PPACA (Obama care which he opposed) as part of his budget
     • Ryan disguises his program cuts behind vague block grants which don’t specify hurtful cuts leaving that to states
    Link to full discussion: http://www.nbcnews.com/... Paul Ryan actually admits his  budget’s “new baseline” is dependent upon increased revenue: “now that the fiscal cliff is behind us…” – Ryans words
