In honor of "tax day," the April 15th filing deadline for federal income taxes, TheBlaze TV's Wonderful World of Stu recently decided to see how aware the average American is of how different income groups are contributing to the national coffers.
Last week, I wrote about an article in the Los Angeles Times, on a then-as-yet unpublished report from the RAND Corporation, indicating that only one-third of Obamacare’s purported 7.1 million exchange sign-ups were from the previously uninsured. But Noam Levey, the author of the Times article, didn...
Just as I predicted all 3 current House members Paul Broun, Phil Gingrey, and Jack Kingston from Georgia running for the open US Senate seat voted NO on the Paul Ryan Budget.
Tom Graves voted YES as he said he would.
Paul Broun, the only one that I have found to release a statement on his NO vote stated - “Simply put, the Ryan Budget continues to spend money we don’t have. In our state of fiscal emergency, we cannot afford to increase spending and delay the tough decision making for future Congresses,” said Rep. Broun. “In our current budget situation, we would see spending grow by approximately 5.2% a year over ten years. Ryan’s plan would still increase spending by approximately 3.5% a year over 10 years. My party has taken the position that it spends less than the Democrats, it’s still acceptable to increase spending. This is simply not good enough – and this mentality must stop.
This I agree with whole heartedly. With all the wasteful spending in Washington DC this budget is unacceptable.. The run away spending tin can has again been kick down the road.

I will reserve judgment until I study this budget. I do feel it will go no where because of course it repeals Obamacare which I'm in favor of. From what I have heard many fiscal conservatives will vote against it. Not enough spending cuts. I'm going to bet all those serving in the House running for the Senate will vote no.
Congressman Tom Graves
This week, I will vote for the new House Republican Budget, called The Path to Prosperity.
This budget is a vision for a free and prosperous America, where the deficit becomes a surplus through spending reform, paychecks get bigger and jobs get better through tax reform, and more people can access job training under a new anti-poverty agenda.
This vision keeps our country’s promises to seniors and provides new opportunities for future generations. It also repeals Obamacare and clears the way for health care freedom and choice.
One personal favorite is a section on transportation reform, which includes concepts from my Transportation Empowerment Act. Specifically, the budget recommends a pilot program for states to take control of highway funding and opt out of the federal gas tax.
Overall, this is a bold vision for America and a conservative counter-argument to the harmful policies of President Obama.
We know America can do better, and this is our plan to do it.
I encourage you to visit the House Budget Committee website, where you can view the the full plan, nonpartisan analysis, detailed summaries and helpful graphs.
