'Path to More Adversity': Paul Ryan Unveils Budget Proposal

Andrea Germanos, staff writer

Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) rolled out the 2015 House Republican budget on Tuesday. His "Path to Prosperity," critics charge, is a path to austerity that is completely out of step with what Americans want.

Releasing the budget, the House Budget Committee Chairman called it "a plan to balance the budget and create jobs" that "shows how we will solve our nation’s biggest challenges."

His proposals, says Robert Greenstein, president of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, are a "path to more adversity."


If the Republican party is so hell-bent on an Austerity Budget, they should be required to be the first to experience one. No subsidized health insurance for legislators. No pathway for legislator to lobbyist. No Citizens United (No big donors, corporate or private). No raises (the public will determine their minimum wage).
