Today's Washington Post: Only Paul's Plan Will Reduce the Deficit

Report: Debt will swell under top GOP hopefuls’ tax plans
By Lori Montgomery | February 23, 2012

The national debt is likely to balloon under tax policies championed by three of the four major Republican candidates for president, according to an independent analysis of tax and spending proposals so far offered by the candidates.

The lone exception is Texas Rep. Ron Paul, who would pair a big reduction in tax rates with even bigger cuts in government services, slicing about $2 trillion from future borrowing.

According to the report — set for release Thursday by U.S. Budget Watch, a project of the bipartisan Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget — former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum and former House speaker Newt Gingrich would do the most damage to the nation’s finances, offering tax and spending policies likely to require trillions of dollars in fresh borrowing.

The young turks

i Saw this report on the young Turks, even though Cenk is a rather angry liberal he has a definite soft spot for Dr. Paul he made a strong point to make it clear that Ron is the the only one in the race that will actually meet the tax cuts with spending cuts sufficent enough to defeat the debt were as the establishment plan is just wimpy spending cuts,more OFFENSE spending, and lack-luster tax cuts.

Great Photo!

What a great photo! Ron Paul is the tallest!

The tallest candidate usually wins.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

How many sentences about Ron Paul start with

"the lone exception is..."

I think that is this entire campaign summed up. THE phrase of this cycle has been "All of the candidates...except Ron Paul." He really is different, and it scares the pi$$ out of the people in charge. Right wing, left wing, bankers, neocons, everyone. It terrifies them when they see 1-2-3000 people showing up at his rallies screaming "END THE FED!!!" at the top of their lungs with an intensity that leaves no doubt as to whether they mean it or not. We are awake, and there are millions of us.

No one but Paul!

When I posted the Washington

When I posted the Washington Post story on facebook, they put a picture of Ron Paul automatically. I took it off immediately.

This is poor reporting

No baseline is given at all. What are we increasing or decreasing the debt against? Current levels or projected levels, and if so under what projection?

Convenient that the "bipartisan" foundation didn't have time to evaluate Obama's proposals as well. Even though he actually delivered a budget with 10-year projections to the Congress this month which is not much different than his submission last year.

We MUST win in Washington State!

Send to Drudge

This would be a great article for "conservatives" to read.

I'm sure they would appreciate the information, being conservatives and all.

Debt Kings - Front Page on Huffingtonpost

The article is the lead on Huffingtonpost.

I like your headline better.

Of course even though the article speaks to Ron's plan as the best to reduce the deficit, the headline might as well say Republicans plan to increase the deficit.

Most readers don't get past the headline and it solidifies their already warped view.

I will forward the article with your headline in the subject line.

I shared it with this better

I shared it with this better headline as well.

I hate that

I can't trust when good stuff comes our way. I instantly have an uneasy feeling. I want to be happy, but then a voice says, why would the WP suddenly do something that would actually help this campaign? Ya know? When any of the MSM pays any positive lip service, IMO, it always reeks of being totally orchestrated by.... the powers that be.

Ain't it the truth, though?

Even when I see a headline like "Only Paul's Plan Would Reduce The Deficit," I keep expecting to read something in there like: "Oh, we were just kidding. Since Paul can't win the nomination, his plan doesn't count anyway."

Thank you

Also in USA today great words

Also in USA today
great words within for a new campaign commercial


10-15 million more voters need to believe in non-interventionism (liberty) at home and abroad to change America. Minds changed on Syria. Minds changing on privacy. "Printing money" is part of the dialogue. Win minds through focus, strategy.

TV Ad the moment it is official

This could be a really crushing blow, certainly to Santorum and Gingrich and the opporunity to use an outsider report to drill it home should not be missed.

What a joke.

This so called piece of reporting uses "estimates" based on what candidates have said they will do once in office!! LOL yeah right heard that before. RP is the ONLY candidate to release a full and transparent budget that outlines exactly what he would do as President.

Why? Because he has nothing to hide, and no alternate agenda hidden in the background ready to unveil when elected.

This article takes "intermediate estimates" of the proposed spending of the candidates. So what the author is saying is expect a lot more in reality. Right?

Americans that support Ron Paul = Awake
Those that don't = Asleep

As always

the only true conservative in the race. I sure wish it was easier to spread the message lol.

I'm Shocked

WaPo typically only completely trashes Paul.

Dats right

Dats right

Very nice presentation

of the facts.

The title of the article needs a little work: Report: Debt will swell under top GOP hopefuls’ tax plans

??? Ron Paul isn't a top hopeful ???

So, why vote for anyone else but Ron Paul? As Ron Paul said to Candy Crowley - the real issue is the economy and they're talking about birth control.

I wonder when people will realize that talking about moral issues that can not be legislated by the government is empty rhetoric meant to only garner votes...

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.
