“White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer argued in a written statement earlier this month that the Ryan budget “fails the test of balance, fairness, and shared responsibility.”
It “draws on the same wrongheaded theory that led to the worst recession of our lifetimes and contributed to the erosion of middle-class security over the last decade,” he said.”
Hey, It’s the White House. What did you expect the anti-capitalists to say!
“Even as House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan’s budget would impose trillions of dollars in spending cuts, 62 percent of which would come from low-income programs, it would enact new tax cuts that would provide huge windfalls to households at the top of the income scale. New analysis by the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center (TPC) finds that people earning more than $1 million a year would receive $265,000 apiece in new tax cuts, on average, on top of the $129,000 they would receive from the Ryan budget’s extension of President Bush’s tax cuts.
The new tax cuts at the top would dwarf those for middle-and lower-income families.”
That’s not fair either.
Their website says “The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities is one of the nation’s premier policy organizations working at the federal and state levels on fiscal policy and public programs that affect low- and moderate-income families and individuals.”
That doesn’t concern us? Besides “moderate” income is the middle class. They must be socialist or something. I’m rich. You’re not. Too bad.
I guess that wouldn’t be a good campaign slogan afterall…
