Not needed: An accountant in chief
politico.com — Robert Borosage writes in Politico:
"Ryan’s plan provides the president with an easy foil, a virtual burlesque of tuxedo priorities. It would lower taxes on the rich and corporations. It pays for that by slashing domestic spending, leaving the bloated defense budget virtually unscathed and ending Medicare and Medicaid as we know them, foisting rising costs on the most vulnerable — seniors, the disabled, the deathly ill and the impoverished. Then, after 10 years of this, the Congressional Budget Office concludes, the debt and deficits would essentially be where they would be if Congress left current law in place."
