What They Are Saying About The House Republicans’ Budget, Vol. 4

- April 6, 2011

“What Real Leaders Do”

The Chicago Tribune: “What Real Leaders Do.” (Editorial, “What Real Leaders Do,” The Chicago Tribune4/5/11)

  • The Chicago Tribune: “If Not The Ryan Plan, Democrats, Then What?” (Editorial, “What Real Leaders Do,” The Chicago Tribune4/5/11)
  • The Chicago Tribune: “Tuesday brought a welcome blast of truth-telling among the grown-ups on Capitol Hill. House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., unveiled a politically risky proposal to curb federal deficits and pay down the national debt.” (Editorial, “What Real Leaders Do,” The Chicago Tribune4/5/11)
  • The Chicago Tribune: “Paul Ryan and his allies aren't waiting for a perfect moment that, in Washington, never comes. On Tuesday, they did what real leaders do. They risked their necks.” (Editorial, “What Real Leaders Do,” The Chicago Tribune4/5/11)

USA Today: Democrats Have Already Begun To Demonize The Ryan Plan, But Where Is Theirs? (Editorial, “Dems Bash GOP Budget, But Where’s Theirs?,” USA Today4/6/11)

  • USA Today: Two Bipartisan Deficit Panels Produced Serious, Workable Proposals Last Year, Which President Obama Treated As If They Had Cooties.” (Editorial, “Dems Bash GOP Budget, But Where’s Theirs?,” USA Today4/6/11)
  • USA Today: “[T]he Wisconsin Republican's proposal is the first plan in Congress big enough to do something serious about the nation's runaway deficits and debt.” (Editorial, “Dems Bash GOP Budget, But Where’s Theirs?,” USA Today4/6/11)
  • USA Today: “Attacking the Republican plan might reap short-term political rewards, but the lack of presidential leadership is distressing.” (Editorial, “Dems Bash GOP Budget, But Where’s Theirs?,” USA Today4/6/11)

USA Today: “Without A Credible Proposal Of Their Own, It's Hard To Believe The Democrats Understand The Danger Posed By The Rapidly Escalating National Debt.” (Editorial, “Dems Bash GOP Budget, But Where’s Theirs?,” USA Today4/6/11)

  • USA Today“It's hard to have a serious debate, though, if one side appears to be in denial about the extent of the problem. Democrats' lack of an alternative suggests that all they really support is the unsustainable status quo. Let the adult conversation begin.” (Editorial, “Dems Bash GOP Budget, But Where’s Theirs?,” USA Today,4/6/11)

Los Angeles Times: “Rep. Paul Ryan, the Wisconsin Republican who chairs the House Budget Committee, has proposed the most ambitious tax-and-spending plan that Capitol Hill has seen in years.” (Editorial, “The GOP Plan For The Federal Deficit,” The Los Angeles Times4/6/11)

  • LAT“Unlike Obama, who has yet to offer any serious proposal to bring the budget into balance and stop the national debt from reaching a dangerously high level, Ryan offered a budget plan Tuesday that would pare spending by about $6 trillion over the next decade, and by enough to eliminate the deficit within 30 years. For that he deserves credit.”  (Editorial, “The GOP Plan For The Federal Deficit,” The Los Angeles Times4/6/11)

CNN’s Gloria Borger: “[I]t's clearly going to define the domestic policy discussion into 2012. For that alone, Ryan deserves kudos.” (Gloria Borger, Op-Ed, “Washington, We’re Done With High School,” CNN, 4/6/11)

The Washington Post: “The first thing to praise about House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan’s budget plan, unveiled Tuesday, is that it exists. The Wisconsin Republican has produced a plan to deal with the debt, which is more than his Democratic colleagues or President Obama can say.” (Editorial, “A First Look At Rep. Ryan’s Budget Plan,” The Washington Post, 4/5/11)

  • WaPo: “In a statement Tuesday, White House press secretary Jay Carney said the president believes that long-term deficit reduction is “essential” but “strongly disagree[s]” with Ryan’s approach. “The President believes there is a more balanced way to put America on a path to prosperity.” What would that path be, Mr. President?” (Editorial, “A First Look At Rep. Ryan’s Budget Plan,” The Washington Post, 4/5/11)

CNBC’s Larry Kudlow: “Paul Ryan’s Growth Budget.” (Larry Kudlow, “Paul Ryan’s Growth Budget,” CNBC, 4/5/11)

  • Kudlow: “Ryan basically stole the bacon from President Obama, who should have put this kind of plan in his State of the Union. He didn’t. And now he’s got to play catch-up, although the Senate Democrats are utterly hopeless.” (Larry Kudlow, “Paul Ryan’s Growth Budget,” CNBC, 4/5/11)
  • Kudlow: “In some sense I hear Paul Ryan saying, ‘I will not allow America to become Greece.’ Amen.” (Larry Kudlow, “Paul Ryan’s Growth Budget,” CNBC, 4/5/11
