    The only serious plan out there that actually balances the budget is the Democratic Congressional Progressive Caucus’ budget. Unlike the Senate Democrats’ conservative plan, it balances the budget through a balance of tax increases and spending cuts, and creates jobs with government investment in infrastructure. Unlike the Republican budget, it actually contains numbers, specifies which loopholes would be closed, specifies what programs will be cut, and would create jobs rather than destroying them.

    If every penny the “rich” had was taken away today it wouldn’t erase the debt that the Democrats have layed on us. Besides, being the good liberals they are, any increase in revenue by the government would be immediately spent on new phones, TVs, computers, cars, etc for the “poor”. Once that money was gone they would be screaming for another “stimulus”.

    Meanwhile, in the next room, there’s an elephant shoveling weapons programs down the throat of a man in military uniform, even though he says he doesn’t need or want them.

    I just finished reading the executive summary of the Democratic Congressional Progressive Caucus’ budget. There are no real numbers in the summary, and I was unable to find a spread sheet on their budget with real numbers.It only specifies x% increases in this and y% increases that. I did not find in the summary to be at all serious but only a pipe dream or wish list of what the Democratic Congressional Progressive Caucus would like to see as a budget. It is mostly unrealistic.

    Maybe you could get someone to teach how to read real budget and economic numbers … it could make your commentary relevant to the real world

    Well, as much as I disagree with Arod on most subjects, it behooves one to take a gander at the information.

    The article contains a PDF link to the details of the budget.

    Information is the ultimate weapon/tool

    “if every penny the “rich” had was taken away today it wouldn’t erase the debt” Learn about economics and how to pay down debt.

    I tried you link and could find not details. What I do have is a twelve page summary that I got from the CPC site. Is this what you were talking about?

    Where is the PDF link? I went to the article but could find no PFD link anywhere on the page.

    Guys, the PDF link is on the last line of the first paragraph in Parenthesis color blue (PDF).
    But here you go.

    Well Mike, the first article is just one page summary and the pdf file it links to has a 19 page summary with some specifics. I agree with some of it. Here is the file:

    I’m just here to cut most of your extra food. The Republicans would prefer to amputate vital parts.

    It’s a big country with a lot of people in them, some of them with special needs. Government – any government – SHOULD provide certain services that the private sector can’t provide. Take my Granny as an example. Her Social Security entitlement (accrued through high taxes) survived WW1, the Black Friday and WW2 because it was guaranteed by the nation of Germany, no matter who was running it. Now contrast that with GWBs idea to privatize Social Security…

    Consider Michelle Obama goes on the warpath whenever a private citizen overeats.

    We’ll never balance the budget. Conservatives waste too much money on corporate welfare.
