I wish hadn't chosen that name, though. There is a group of sleazy fucking shysters, some say COINTELPRO-style operatives, who have suckered people into supporting an idea they originally called The Restore America Plan (TRAP - that's just what it is). For obvious reason, of late it has come to be called only Restore America Plan by the promoters. Other than in name, Ron Paul's Restore America Plan, the only economic plan in existence that can possibly save this country from total financial ruin, is in no way similar to TRAP's "patriot movement" bullshit for dumbasses. Dumbasses who can't or won't read, preferring instead to believe in magic silver bullets offered by teevee preacher understudies.

A 9-slice, 9-toppings, 9-day old cold pizza is the best offer from his opponents.

"Single acts of tyranny may be ascribed to the accidental

distinguished period and pursued unalterably through every
change of ministers, too plainly prove a deliberate, systematic
plan of reducing [a people] to slavery."

"Everything that Paul's suggesting,... we've called for on this program."
-- Blush Limpdick

In other words, "Well, they are good ideas, but the thing is, they're MY ideas."

What a douchebag! :puke:

"Snerdly is in there yelling at me, 'if you do what's been suggested by Paul, there's gonna be race riots in the streets.' There's riots in the streets now. And, there's gonna be more rioting in the streets because that's part of the program. I guarantee. Race riots are part of the plan this regime has. That's next"
-- Blush Limpdick

This was the article Blush Limpdick cited when he claimed to like Ron Paul's economic plan.

Ron Paul Dropping a Reality Bomb on the GOP Field
October 17, 2011 10:23 A.M.
By Kevin D. Williamson
http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/28 ... williamson

Politico reports that Ron Paul is about to show the Republican presidential field what a serious fiscal-reform plan looks like, proposing $1 trillion in real spending cuts. I look forward to seeing the detailed version of the plan, but the summary sounds promising:

He’ll propose immediately freezing spending by numerous government agencies at 2006 levels, the last time Republicans had complete control of the federal budget, and drastically reducing spending elsewhere. The EPA would see a 30 percent cut, the Food and Drug Administration would see one of 40 percent and foreign aid would be zeroed out immediately. He’d also take an ax to Pentagon funding for wars.

Medicaid, the children’s health insurance program, food stamps, family support programs and the children’s nutrition program would all be block-granted to the states and removed from the mandatory spending column of the federal budget. Some functions of eliminated departments, such as Pell Grants, would be continued elsewhere in the federal bureaucracy.

And in a noticeable nod to seniors during an election year when Social Security’s become an issue within the Republican primary, the campaign says that plan “honors our promise to our seniors and veterans, while allowing young workers to opt out.”

The federal workforce would be reduced by 10 percent, and the president’s pay would be cut to $39,336 — a level that the Paul document notes is “approximately equal to the median personal income of the American worker.”


Never mind the silly symbolic stuff — presidential pay, etc. — $1 trillion in cuts, block-granting some big entitlements, creating a Social Security opt-out: these are things that need to happen. They won’t happen in the next two years, probably — any more than the Ryan Roadmap will be enacted — but it is important that Republicans lay down a few serious long-term budget markers.

Real fiscal change probably won’t happen until things get bad enough economically that reform looks politically easier than maintaining the status quo. But moments like that have a way of sneaking up on you — ask the Greeks — and we’ll want to have a robust plan ready to go. For all my reservations about Ron Paul, he does a real public service by reminding conservatives that, while we are rightly hesitant about radical proposals, tinkering around the edges is not going to get it done in the long term. The age of unpleasant choices is upon us.

the things liberals don't understand are the tax cuts, they think the solution to everything it to just tax rich people more. People are already paying over a third of what they own. Stealing more money without cutting spending wont solve anything it will just lower employment. cut taxes and cut spending more that's how you get out of debt and create jobs.

Bloomberg has received over 450 comments to this editorial. The average number of comments runs about 90 (according to William Roberts, a daily reader). Perhaps Bloomberg should receive a few more? (hint, hint)

[my comments]

The Hidden Utility of Ron Paul’s Balanced-Budget Plan: View
By the Editors
October 18, 2011 8:05 PM EDT
http://mobile.bloomberg.com/news/2011-1 ... Fcanada%2F

American voters are adept at sending mixed messages to elected officials. None are as confusing as the signals from the heartland over how to fix the federal budget.

Image
[This graphic at the very top of the page is incredibly misleading. Bridges and Roads, Veterans, Social Security and Defense all struck out as if to imply that Ron Paul will cut funding for all those things. A blatant lie!

State governments will have more money for infrastructure when it isn't stolen by the federal government. Veterans benefits won't be touched whatsoever! Social Security will still be available for seniors. And defense will be the top priority of the federal government during Paul's administration so of course it won't be unfunded.
This is a subtle example of how the likes of Bloomberg spread lies about Ron Paul. Bloomberg can't debate him honestly so, they just keep lying.]


When told that the U.S. deficit is now $1.3 trillion, the majority of voters enthusiastically embrace the need to cut, cut, cut. But they balk when asked to name specific programs to downsize or lop off.

[The Libertarian Harry Browne was fond of asking people "Even if meant never paying another dime in income tax, what government service would you not like to see cut?" Not only have most people never heard of the Grace Commission report much less even read it but, they invariably worry most about roads (federal and state fuel taxes pay for roads) and other services for which the federal income tax was never intended to fund.]
Quote:
Resistance to additional income taxes would be even more widespread if people were aware that:
One-third of all their taxes is consumed by waste and inefficiency in the Federal Government as we identified in our survey.
Another one-third of all their taxes escapes collection from others as the underground economy blossoms in direct proportion to tax increases and places even more pressure on law abiding taxpayers, promoting still more underground economy-a vicious cycle that must be broken.
With two-thirds of everyone's personal income taxes wasted or not collected, 100 percent of what is collected is absorbed solely by interest on the Federal debt and by Federal Government contributions to transfer payments.
In other words, all individual income tax revenues are gone before one nickel is spent on the services which taxpayers expect from their Government.

Grace Commission Report to President Reagan
January 12, 1984
http://www.uhuh.com/taxstuff/gracecom.htm


That’s why U.S. Representative Ron Paul, the libertarian seeking the Republican presidential nomination, performed a valuable public service this week when he unveiled a budget plan that shows exactly what balancing the $3.8 trillion budget through spending cuts would look like.

Paul’s blueprint, released Oct. 17, would balance the books in three years. Admirably, he commits real numbers to paper. He does it in just five pages. And he spares no one: the health- care industry, defense contractors, oil-and-gas companies, federal workers, homeowners, the poor, the middle class and the rich.

In broad terms, Paul (whose chances of making it to the White House are beyond remote) [Though it serves no useful purpose, Bloomberg's editors just had to put that in.] would force Americans to confront their contradictions by slicing $1 trillion from the budget in his first year in office. He would eliminate five Cabinet-level agencies: Commerce, Education, Energy, Housing and Urban Development, and Interior. He would end the Transportation Security Administration. He would pare back most other programs to 2006 spending levels, before the financial crisis and the recession pushed up spending by the trillions.

Block Grants

The congressman wouldn’t stop there. Medicaid would become a block grant to the states, as would food stamps, child nutrition and other income-support programs. He would, of course, zero-out foreign aid. At least he’s egalitarian about it: If elected, Paul would pay himself a salary equivalent to the median personal income of the American worker -- $39,336.

President Paul would also starve the revenue side of the ledger. Corporations would see tax rates drop to 15 percent from 35 percent. He would extend all the Bush-era tax cuts, abolish taxes on estates and investment income. He wouldn’t end Social Security, but he would let young people opt out of the retirement program. As for that $1 trillion sitting in the overseas bank accounts of U.S. corporations, Paul would allow the money to come home tax-free.

Cut the Bureaucracy

Such radical reductions in revenue would make it hard to run the vast federal bureaucracy. [ :clap: :bounce: :clap: :bounce: :clap: :bounce: :clap: :bounce: [No shit Sherlock, I mean Shylock!] True to his libertarian principles, Paul takes care of that problem by trimming the federal workforce by 10 percent -- and giving it far less to do. He would, for example, seek to repeal both the Dodd-Frank financial reform law and President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act, along with eliminating many environmental and other federal regulations.

What’s wrong with this? [Not one fucking thing!] It doesn’t take much work to paint a dystopian picture. [Should be easy for even a Bloomberg editor, then.] Let’s begin with a simple example. Without an Interior Department, there would be no agency to oversee national parks, federal lands and offshore drilling. Land would have to be auctioned off to the highest bidders, most likely oil-and-gas, coal and timber companies. The states would inherit Teddy Roosevelt’s national parks, but imagine how Yosemite would fare if it suddenly became the ward of strapped California. [Imagine what California would look like if it WEREN'T the ward of strapped U.S., Inc.]

Or let’s imagine another scene from Mr. Paul’s America. Each state would have to become the regulator of its financial, manufacturing and health-care industries. A patchwork of rules would result. States might soon engage in a dangerous game of regulatory competition: Some would ease rules to attract businesses, forcing those seeking to protect the health and pocketbooks of residents to lower their standards -- or lose jobs. Illinois might [ :P ] choose, say, to let manufacturers dump waste in the Mississippi River. What recourse would downstream Missouri, Tennessee or Louisiana have if their drinking water became polluted? :shrug: [Umm, let me guess. I know, I know. Massive lawsuits!] :grr:

Social Security

Or let’s simply consider what would happen if the under-30 crowd stopped contributing to Social Security: The pay-as-you-go system would dry up, depriving today’s retirees of benefits. About 25 million elderly households now depend entirely on Social Security for income, leaving them unable to buy food or pay heating bills. [Fear mongering the elderly with Social Security nightmares isn't reserved to only politicians. This is a total fucking lie! Saying that Social Security is a Ponzi scheme is the only true statement ever uttered by Rick Perry, for which he was ridiculed. But, all Truth goes through three stages, as evidenced by the response of those too ignorant to understand that fact.]

Low-income families would be hit the hardest. By converting Medicaid into a block grant, Paul would freeze what is now a $285 billion program at $186 billion from 2013 to 2016. He would do the same for food stamps, now a $58 billion program; it would be downsized to $30 billion four years in a row. [It is not unreasonable to assume that the expected positive response to the economy should more than offset the effects.]

We should be grateful to Paul for painting a clear picture of what so many Americans say they wish for. [I certainly am!] Our guess is that those who look at this picture will conclude that there are other, more sensible ways to restore fiscal order in the U.S. [Like doing the same thing over and over and over and over again?] :grr:

Spend More

Why, for instance, is it necessary to balance the budget in three years? Most economists say a sounder approach would involve spending more -- yes, more -- for the next few years to keep the fragile recovery on track, and focusing on budget cuts in the medium term. [Our current economic situation serves as proof that "most economists," who ludicrously push spending our way out of misery, are clearly insane.]

We’ve argued, for example, for a plan to reduce the deficit by $4 trillion over 10 years, much like the one endorsed by the Simpson-Bowles panel last year. Of the $4 trillion, at least $1 trillion should come from tax increases, including higher levies on households making more than $250,000 and the elimination of other Bush-era breaks. An additional $500 billion could be squeezed out of Medicare by requiring, say, pharmaceutical companies to provide rebates on purchases by the federal program, similar to the discounts Medicaid now receives, and by increasing co-payments, deductibles and other forms of cost- sharing by the affluent. [Simplification is called for. It is an indisputable fact that creating more and more complex laws, rules, and regulations only serve to give CONgress the means to reward some who contribute heavily to campaign war chests and punish others who don't.]

Like the congressman, we’d cut corporate subsidies and farm programs, and phase out deductions for mortgage interest and corporate-sponsored health insurance. We would ask federal workers to pay more toward their pensions. [Ask? Gimme a fuggin' break! Gummint never asks. It simply points a gun. Rarely at its own, though. At least Bloomberg's editors have found something with which they can agree in Paul's plan.]

There’s an egalitarian way for Americans to share in the burden of achieving fiscal responsibility, but there’s no reason for entire Cabinet departments, the social safety net and the economy to be crushed in the process. [More fear mongering without offering any evidence whatsoever.]
