The Democrats are still out there trying to distort everything about anything Paul Ryan has proposed. Chris Van Hollen was on Greta Susteren’s program last night and he toed the party line. Paul Ryan is a nice guy, he is willing to listen to what you say, but then proposes these programs that will hurt middle America. He then rolls out the lie to back it up.
The Tax Policy Center did an analysis of the Ryan plan and said that it would give $86 billion in tax cuts to the rich and pay for them by passing them along to the middle class. Ryan’s plan does call for cutting tax rates, which would help those who pay taxes, but he also proposes the elimination of tax loopholes which would hurt those who most use them, again, those who have a more income to shelter. The net effect is to be revenue neutral. In other words, no impact to the middle class.
The Tax Policy Center simply changed the Ryan plan saying he wouldn’t eliminate the loopholes for municipal bond interest nor life insurance. By doing that it’s not the Ryan plan any more it is the Tax Policy Center’s plan. And it is the plan that the Democrats are running around lying about and saying is really the Ryan plan.
Well this has not been the best of weeks for the Democrats and here’s one more. The Tax Policy Center has come out and said that if the Ryan plan does what Ryan said it would do, then there is no $86 billion shift in tax burden from the rich to the middle class. I’ll let Paul Ryan explain it to you.
This is the last of three posts on Paul Ryan’s plans. It is a plan for growth and lower spending, it is a plan to make Medicare work and not go bankrupt, it is a plan to revise the tax code. Are they going to be politically tough? Yes, but with your help, not impossible. Anyway, it is far better than the smoke and mirrors, hope and change, we have been fed for the past four years. Let’s turn this ship around while we still can.
That’s my opinion; I’d like to know yours. Please comment below.
