What Republican Rule Would Look Like

10 03 2010

Remember Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) budget “roadmap”. Yeah, you guessed it, it sucks for everyone. Well, everyone except the mega rich. I know, I know, get out the fainting couch.

Via Benen:

The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities explained today, the roadmap “calls for radical policy changes that would result in a massive transfer of resources from the broad majority of Americans to the nation’s wealthiest individuals.”

Sounds like fun.

And also this, and too.

At the same time, the Ryan plan would raise taxes for most middle-income families, privatize a substantial portion of Social Security, eliminate the tax exclusion for employer-sponsored health insurance, end traditional Medicare and most of Medicaid, and terminate the Children’s Health Insurance Program. The plan would replace these health programs with a system of vouchers whose value would erode over time and thus would purchase health insurance that would cover fewer health care services as the years went by.
