In praising the comprehensive budget plan that House Budget Committee chairman Paul Ryan introduced today, Jimmy LaSalvia, Executive Director of GOProud reminds us of a criticism Democrats have been leveling against Republicans for the past two years:
The left constantly berated Republicans in the last Congress for supposedly failing to offer alternatives, labeling the GOP as the ‘party of no’. Today, the liberal smear machine is in full force, attacking Rep. Ryan and House Republicans for having the political courage to put forward a comprehensive budget plan. Democrats in Congress are offering no such plan, and the President offers no such plan either; it seems just a few months after attacking Republicans for supposedly failing to offer solutions that it is indeed the Democratic Party that is totally devoid of any plan to solve our budget crisis.
It’s almost as if Democrats (and their allies) were accusing Republicans of lacking a plan in order to “bait” them to present one so they could attack as “extreme.”
Nice to see a gay group reminding us a smaller government which spends less is good for gay people.
UPDATE: Log Cagin has now followed suit, with R. Clarke Cooper, the organization’s Executive Director, calling the Ryan plan “a serious budget in response to the serious challenges facing our nation today“.
