Romney/Ryan is much WORSE than Bush/Cheney

http://ian56.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/romneyryan-is-worse-than...

1) MASSIVE increases to military spending
They are warmongers who want massive increases to military spending which is already at £1,219 bn for 2012.
The number NOBODY wants you to see.

Ryan/Romney want to save a relatively small amount on Medicare/Medicaid cuts and make MASSIVE increases to military spending, which are already at ASTRONOMICAL levels.
Romney's budget plan is EVEN worse.
He would spend circa $1,400bn more over a term compared to Ryan.
It looks like around $6.6 trilion on military related expenditures during a first term.
When asked from public polling, Indie's and Dems want a military budget of circa $400bn p.a. and GOP circa $450bn p.a.
Dan Senor is Romney's senior Foreign Policy advisor.
He was a rabid warmonger in the Bush administration.

Ryan/Romney want tax cuts for those earning above $200,000 and tax hikes for the poor.

2) Deficits - same as Obama
The Ryan plan does nothing to reduce the deficit.
It is very similar to Obama's proposed deficit.
It is so full of holes it may well be worse than Obama's.
E.G. Ryan's plan says he will close $700bn p.a. of "tax loopholes" by 2022 but in 98 pages of rhetoric he cannot name a single loophole he would close.
Romney's budget plan is EVEN worse.
He would spend circa $1,400bn more over a term compared to Ryan.
It looks like around $6.6 trilion on military related expenditures during a first term.
When asked from public polling, Indie's and Dems want a military budget of circa $400bn p.a. and GOP circa $450bn p.a.

3) Taxes
Ryan/Romney want tax cuts for those earning above $200,000 and tax hikes for the poor.
Romney raised fees whilst Ma Governor by $780m p.a. This disproportionately affected lower earners and small businesses.
Ryan is no "fiscal hawk". He is a reckless spending fiscal DOVE.

Contrary to recent reports, Ryan is no friend of the Tea Party.
He said he was against bail-outs and then asked for government subsidies for Wisconsin. Actions speak louder than words.
Koch brothers are supporting Ryan because of his huge big oil subsidies, not from any moral standpoint.
Business is business.

4) Corruption and Pork
The level of endemic corruption and Pork would rise under a Romney/Ryan administration.
They both have history.

Romney was labelled King of Pork whilst Ma Governor "I cut all kinds of deals with all kinds of people".
Romney raised the Federal Education budget as part of the $400bn in government subsidies in order to pay for the Salt Lake City Olympics.
Romney/Ryan tax changes would benefit Romney to the tune of about $90m.

Ryan's budget has $45bn subsidies for big oil, which him and his family would benefit from.

Ryan's family make money from the health insurance industry

Romney/Ryan is even WORSE than Bush/Cheney. Much WORSE.

If Ryan shoots like Cheney, don't go hunting with him, either

You might take an arrow in the knee.

Nope not worse.

Just more of the same, problem is, i think it'll be during this presidency that the ponzi system, oops, I'm mean the monetary system is gonna implode.

Yep, Worse,

as now Dick the Devil and the Bush clan can become the shadowy puppet masters, and will not be the public faces of the terror that
will be inflicted on the world.
Hell, they got away with the debacle of 9/11 in plane sight...imagine what they can get away with behind the scenes.
