Re: Ryan’s $74 Billion

by Daniel Foster

Kate, it can’t be emphasized enough that this is above and beyond what the Pledge to America promised in terms of cuts, in a fiscal year that is already nearly half over. Indeed, Ryan even threw in some $16 billion in defense cuts.

But stay tuned for some Dutch-door action from the Democrats, who will in the same breath claim that the Republicans have failed to hit their promised spending-cut targets, and that in doing so they are going to starve your grandmother to death.
