So Paul Ryan has his plan to balance the budget in ten years. This is versus Obama’s plan to balance the budget in never. In fact, Obama had to send his spokesman out to clarify that calling something the “balanced approach” is just a name. “It’s like if someone is named Rod, you don’t expect him to actually be some sort of cylinder. Similarly, because our plan is called the ‘balanced approach’ doesn’t mean there is any actual sort of balancing… or even that there is an approach to it. It’s mainly just more taxes on the rich for some reason.”
Paul Ryan’s plan, on the other hand, actually involves numbers and stuff and adding. Thus it’s a radically different plan than anything from Obama. In fact, it’s very scary to Democrats. “What’s all these weird squiggles?” the Dems ask. And Paul Ryan is like, “They are numbers. And when they’re in equations like this, it’s called ‘Math.’” And the Dems are like, “No. I don’t like this. Get it away from me. Math isn’t real and it can’t hurt us! You take it away! You take it away now!”
And so far Dems have been wining the argument, but maybe things will change.
