"Here’s a question for those of you concerned about the size of federal debts and deficits: Would you endorse a plan that would add another five or six trillion dollars to the federal debt over the next decade while also increasing Uncle Sam’s annual expenditures by $1.1 trillion? If so, you’re in luck. House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R) of Wisconsin has put forth just such a plan. Initially, Democrats denounced Mr. Ryan’s plan as 'radical.' From their perspective, adding 'only' 5 or 6 trillion dollars of new debt is radically stingy." (05/15/11)
