After a short reprieve, the budget fight is back on in Congress. Today, Congressman Paul Ryan will give a speech introducing his 2013 budget, the Republican answer to the budget Obama proposed last month. In an election year, Ryan's budget is partially a manifesto of what America can expect from many — but not all — Republican legislators.

No budget from Pelosi in 2010, no budget from Reid in over 1000 days and Obama's "statement of philosophy" was rejected 97-0 in the US Senate. Ryan's budget plan is a serious attempt to avoid a predictable economic disaster that the media and this administration is desperately trying to distract from this year because they have no serious plans to prevent it.

The argument over how to fund healthcare for the elderly is a no win argument: the problem is that we don't have enough young people. We have kllled them in abortion. As a result, we don't have enough people to support the older people. And no matter how you rearrange the money, the people aren't there.
