The GOP’s so-called budget whiz, Paul Ryan, has a new plan to balance the budget — and it’s a disaster. Cenk translates Ryan’s speech into reality: “I want to help the poor by taking all the money away from the poor!”
The plan includes $5.3 trillion in cuts and would actually devastate Medicare and Medicaid. “See how he’s helping you?” And the proposal even includes tax cuts for the wealthy of $4.3 trillion.
“It creates a $4 trillion deficit” over 10 years, Cenk points out. “His intention and the intention of the entire Republican party is to steal from the middle class and give it to the rich.”
