    Brought this over…

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-line/wp/2015/03/26/morning-plum-what-the-gop-budgets-really-tell-us-about-gops-economic-agenda/

    the House GOP leadership successfully passed a budget that would cut $5.5 trillion in spending, repealing Obamacare, block-granting (a.k.a., cutting) Medicaid, and slashing away at food stamps, education, and many other programs. If the Senate this week passes its budget, which contains similar cuts, Republicans in both chambers will try to put them together, and hold a vote on the whole package.

    The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities looked at the specified and unspecified reductions in both budgets — which were required to meet the goal of balance in 10 years with zero in new revenues — and determined that each would get at least two thirds of its cuts from programs that help lower income Americans.

    the GOP budgets are rooted in the idea that one of the primary obstacles to economic opportunity and mobility is that there is too much government-engineered downward redistribution of wealth. It’s reasonable to surmise that the GOP presidential candidates implicitly share this analysis. As Paul Waldman writes, many of the candidates have flirted with the idea of a flat (i.e., less progressive) tax. Ted Cruz sees the repeal of Obamacare and a flat tax as pivotal to restoring opportunity for our children. Scott Walker is flirting with the party’s most prominent supply siders. Even Jeb Bush, who is said to be the most moderate of the bunch, tacitly premised his big economic speech on the idea that the primary driver of inequality is dependence on the federal government.

    Got that? “There’s too much government engineered downward distribution of wealth.” In other words, too much help for the peons. America…wakey wakey! They just aren’t into you!!!

      And when the 1% have a problem – scream for p11 (government), fight it through the courts (government). All they want is a government that does the wishes of the wealthy. Horrible, horrible people. I do wonder how they sleep at night.

    Ted Cruz has missed 18 votes in the Senate since he announced .

    I would bet Rand Paul is keeping track of this.

    Low-cost airline Norwegian Air Shuttle will now require two people to be in the cockpit at all times for safety reasons. “When one person leaves the cockpit, two people will now have to be there,” its director of operations is quoted as saying by AFP news agency.

    That’s a start.

      Senator Cornyn called a vote on PBO’s budget. Someone does that every year so that it fails. It is a stunt , as usual.

    Leon Panetta needs to decline anti-PBO interviews…..

    Today he let out a BIG SIGN when Mrs. Greenspan asked hem ” What kind of success is this ” ( 7 months ago PBO said Yemen was an example of a counterterrorism success. )

    Panetta has been gone for almost two years….does she think he still gets daily briefings ? The media would dig up a corpse to ask negative questions to target PBO.

      The willful pretense on every event, time, condition and statement being permanent indefinitely……looking for what was….. to be exactly the same today…….humm……somehow in the Era and Age of President Obama…….using the same USA Media and Rightie logic…….The Iraq war was/is supposed to have magically Fixed The “ME” and Muslim World……..how I wish Josh and Co would forcefully push back using harsher languages against these DC/NY Journos and their Rightie Flanks……if not, they would keep dumbing down political discourse and ginning up fake arguments where none is required.

    They can’t stand President Obama because his has shown them for what they are; a bunch of impotent warmongers without a clue of anything that does not pertain to their sad existence. President Obama has best them at every turn from the hunting down and killing of Osama bin Laden to Healthcare. Their cathedrals are decayed and corrupt; ignorance is the currency they now deal in. President Obama has made them beach themselves like animals that crawl out of the sea waiting to be put out of their misery.
