The Alternative to Spending Our Lives Away
Speaker Nancy Pelosi says that the Republicans have no alternative to the liberal policy prescriptions of higher taxes and crushing debt. That is not true. It's just that Pelosi won't allow their ideas to see the light of day.
Rep. Paul Ryan, ranking member of the House Budget Committee, offers just the alternative that we need to prevent wholesale collapse of the American economy at the hands of the liberals.
If the Democrats were truly confident that what they have to offer is a better plan, they would be willing to debate this issue on the merits.
