Again the call for comment from Republican candidates for Congress on how enthusiastically they plan to get behind Rep. Paul Ryan’s widely touted budget plan. It would cut Social Security and Medicare benefits. It would make more money for insurance companies. But wait …. there’s apparently more.
An analysis indicates that his plan would cut taxes by raising taxes on 90 percent of the American people and lowering them dramatically on the top 10 percent. The top 1 percent would make out like bandits, as they always do in the Republican world.
