    by vowing to balance the budget in 10 years.  There is no way on earth to balance the federal budget in 10 years without doing such severe damage to the economy that  we're thrown into a depression on the order of the 1930s.  If they are serious about proposing policies to balance the budget in 10 years, Ryan's revised plan for Medicare is just the beginning of the slash and burn that will be necessary.

    And what's the point?  Such drastic damage will not end up balancing the budget anyway, unless every social safety net program is repealed and people are allowed to die in the streets along with their children and pets.  But maybe that's the point in and of itself.  I guarantee when the public hears what it's going to take to fulfill the GOP promise of a balanced budget, a lot more people are going to realize just how bloodthirsty crazy the Republicans have become.
