The Morning After Ryan: Here's What the Republicans Woke Up To
Prosperity for Whom? - New York Times Editorial
If the House Republican budget blueprint released on Tuesday is the path to prosperity that its title claims, it is hard to imagine what ruin would look like. The plan would condemn millions to the ranks of the uninsured, raise health costs for seniors and renege on the obligation to keep poor children fed. It envisions lower taxes for the wealthy than even George W. Bush imagined: A permanent extension for his tax cuts, plus large permanent estate-tax cuts, a new business tax cut and a lower top income tax rate for the richest taxpayers. <> The deficit is a serious problem, but the Ryan plan is not a serious answer. New York Times, 4/6/11

Rivlin: I don't back 'Ryan-Rivlin' plan - POLITICO
Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) touted the help of former Clinton advisor Alice Rivlin a great, proud Democrat in promoting a key Medicare provision in his budget proposal Tuesday. The only problem? Rivlin said she told the Republican she doesnt support the final version of the measure he wrote into his budget a provision Ryan referred to generally as the Ryan-Rivlin plan when rolling out his sweeping economic blueprint. POLITICO, 4/6/11

Ryan Plan Pushes Optimism to the Outer Limits - National Journal
The tax and spending roadmap put forth Tuesday morning by Ryan, the Wisconsin Republican who heads the House Budget Committee, is backed by a set of extremely optimistic assumptions about how the budget would stimulate private investment, hiring, and broad economic growth. <> But the forecasted growth is so high that it falls on the outer edge of what most economists say is plausibleor even desirablefor the next decade. National Journal, 4/5/11
