The GOP's Alternative Budget

There is another way. A budget that does not raise taxes. A budget that does not sell out our future and place still unborn American children under a mountain of debt. Unborn generations of Americans will directly affected by the decisions made in the next few weeks.

Americans need to be paying attention right now!

Today, the Democrats and the President roll out the most massive budget America has ever seen. Debt and deficit spending beyond any Americans wildest dreams will be rammed down the throat of Americans.

Don't be fooled, this entire massive debt producing budget will be all on the shoulders of the Democrats and there is next to nothing Republicans can do to stop this massive budget.

There are actually a few Democrats that appear to be in a panic about this budget. Their prayer right now is that President Obama's approval ratings are high enough that they will not get hit as hard by the realities of this massive budget.

There is a reason why this budget is being rolled out to the American people while President Obama is partying in Europe. It is a distraction. Instead of reporting on Obama's massive budget, the nightly news gets to report on Obama's European popularity.

Don't be distracted.

Even though this budget will probably be rammed through sending our future into debt producing chaos, the GOP needs to continue to show America the difference between responsible government spending and chaos. For eight years, many in the GOP ignored responsible spending practices, but the time has come to get back to a future built on financial responsibility not deficit spending.

Wisconsin's very own Congressman Paul Ryan is leading the charge:

House Republicans will offer an alternative plan. This too is no ordinary budget. As the opposition party, we believe this moment must be met by offering the American people a different way forward -- one based on our belief that America is an exceptional nation, and we want to keep it that way. Our budget applies our country's enduring first principles to the problems of our day.

Rather than attempting to equalize the results of peoples' lives and micromanaging their affairs, we seek to preserve our system of protecting our natural rights and equalizing opportunity for all. The plan works to accomplish four main goals: 1) fulfill the mission of health and retirement security; 2) control our nation's debts; 3) put the economy on a path of growth and leadership in the global economy; and 4) preserve the American legacy of leaving the next generation better off.


Instead of doubling the debt in five years, and tripling it in 10, the Republican budget curbs the explosion in spending called for by the president and his party. Our plan halts the borrow-and-spend philosophy that brought about today's economic problems, and puts a stop to heaping ever-growing debt on future generations -- and it does so by controlling spending, not by raising taxes. The greatest difference lies in the size of government our budgets achieve over time

Do you think that America believed that they were voting on doubling of the debt when they voted for Obama?
