National Taxpayers Union: Only Ron Paul Would Cut Spending

NTU Report: Other Republicans Would Increase Spending by Billions

ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--According to a report released Tuesday by the National Taxpayers Union, Texas Congressman Ron Paul is the only remaining presidential candidate who proposes net spending cuts.

According to the report, Congressman Paul’s proposals would cut government spending by over $150 billion, a conservative estimate of the spending reductions Dr. Paul has proposed. The report concludes that the other remaining Republican candidates, Mitt Romney, John McCain and Mike Huckabee, have proposed spending increases of $19.5 billion, $6.9 billion and $54 billion respectively.

“It should come as no surprise that when you crunch the numbers Ron Paul is the only Republican who would actually shrink the size and cost of the federal government,” said Ron Paul campaign economic advisor Don Luskin. “Romney, McCain and Huckabee don’t hold a candle to Ron Paul – the only true fiscal conservative running for President.”

In ten terms in Congress, Ron Paul has never voted for a tax increase or for an unbalanced budget.

We need to digg and promote this everywhere. This is a huge endorsement with great information we can use to promote Ron Paul.

I tried to Digg but could not figure out -HELP

A great tool

Guys, this is a fantastic article and tool to use when talking with people who are fiscally conservative. The difference is startling, and it shows just how "liberal" the other candidates are.

Does this translate to an

Does this translate to an official endorsement ? If not, why not? Is anyone on this to find out or ask if they intend to endorse RP for President?

An endorsement like this could translate into a media report. Even scumbag jack cafferty and his squeeze baby anderson cooper would have to report it.

Bump!

This article is huge. This is hard evidence that Ron Paul is the only fiscally conservative left in the race, and it shows just how fiscally nonconservative the others are.

DO NOT mention Ron Paul!

Just comment on how we are already in such debt; where will this money come from?
Particularly focus on Romney and Huckabee, since the are supposed to be "Conservative."

Underestimate?

I presume that that $150 billion savings would come from eliminating the Department of Education and the Department of Commerce, along with a few other domestic programs. I don't think it includes the larger savings that would come from ending the empire, and shrinking our military to what is actually needed to defend our own country. That alone would be at least $200 billion a year in savings.

Remember that $500 billion has to be cut just to balance the budget, and that's with the income tax. When politicians claim that the deficit is $200 or $300 billion they are lying, because they are leaving huge items like the Iraq War off budget. To determine the real deficit, just look at the year to year increase in federal debt.
