Stop The Spending!

I think the biggest disappointment conservatives have with Republicans is the out of control spending they have allowed on their watch. It is beyond frustrating because where are we going to go? The Democrats are like Paris Hilton on a spending spree with our money. I think the Republicans thought it looked like fun to shop as well. Well, enough is enough!

Paul Ryan, a Republican congressman from Wisconsin, is a member of the Budget Committee and the Ways and Means Committee. Here is his scary assessment:

According to the Congressional Budget Office, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and the rest of government will consume nearly 40% of the economy by the time my three young children reach my age (38). This will require more than doubling the average tax burden of the past 40 years just to keep the government afloat. Continuing down this path will eventually strangle our economy.

Read here his roadmap (real plan!) to stop this growing debt.
