GOP Yellowskins Strike Again: Senate GOP budget to break with Paul Ryan’s blueprints

Punks exist in more places than Ferguson Missouri. We have quite a number of then in the Republican Party who are quick to raise the White Flag at the slightest possibility of being criticized by the media or Democrats. What these cowards don’t realize is the corrupt media and Democrats will say nasty things about them no matter what they do.

The Hill reports Senate Republicans will not include detailed plans to overhaul entitlement programs when they unveil their first budget in nearly a decade this week, according to GOP sources.

The decision would break from Rep. Paul Ryan’s (R-Wis.) House budgets from recent years, which Democrats used to pound Republican candidates in the 2012 and 2014 elections.

Democrats repeatedly accused Republicans of wanting to “end Medicare as we know it. In breaking with Ryan, Senate Republicans want to avoid giving their opponents the same ammunition — especially with a slim majority and in danger of losing their majority in 2016.

The GOP budget would balance in 10 years, according to GOP lawmakers familiar with the document, but it will only propose savings to be achieved in Medicare and Medicaid, without spelling out specific reforms as Ryan and House Republicans did in recent budgets.

The Senate GOP blueprint will not propose reforming Social Security, the political third rail that Ryan also avoided as former chairman of the House Budget Committee.

“From the standpoint of a budget, the less words of the English language you use, the better off you are,” said Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), a senior member of the Budget panel.

When it comes to saving money in Medicare and Medicaid, Grassley said it’s preferable to “just have figures in there” instead of spelling out specific reforms, as Ryan did.

One GOP senator said Ryan exceeded his authority as budget chairman when he sketched out a detailed vision for overhauling entitlement programs.

In other words feckless Republicans don’t wanna put their cards on the table to do what’s right. So the solution is to act like Democrats so you don’t get hammered by the media? Pathetic! Cowardly! Unbecoming of being called men because these jokers don’t wanna engage in a battle of ideas. If they don’t have the stomach for the fight these bozos should just resign, go home, and let somebody that isn’t Testosterone-challenged do the job!
