In an election year budget move, House Republicans have proposed a budget that would halve the deficit.
House Republicans unveiled an ambitious plan on Tuesday to cut and simplify taxes, slash spending and make a fresh run at overhauling the Medicare health program in a bid to draw a stark election-year contrast between their budgetary vision and that of President Barack Obama.
The Republican budget plan would produce deficits totaling $3.13 trillion over the next 10 years -- less than half the $6.39 trillion in deficits the Congressional Budget Office says Obama's fiscal 2013 budget plan would rack up.
Putting numbers in black and white, reveals the gigantic cost of ObamaCare.
The Republican budget achieves much of its deficit-reduction goals through savings gained by dismantling Obama's 2010 healthcare reform law and by turning social safety net programs like food stamps and the Medicaid program for the poor into block grants for states.
Although there may be no actual possibility of such a good sense budget actually passing, it certainly exposes the financial lunacy of the left and offers a glimmer of hope to Americans that not all in Washington D.C. have lost their minds.
