Paul Ryan: “We are driving our country and our economy off of a cliff”

July 20, 2011 05:44

“We have a crushing burden of debt that is coming to hit our economy. This is what it all comes down to. We are driving our country and our economy off of a cliff.” “You can’t have sovereignty, self determination as a country if we are relying on other governments to cash flow half of our deficit. This is where we are.”

“We have a leadership deficit.” “The president hasn’t offered a thing yet. Nothing on paper, nothing in public. Leading on reporters at press conferences is not leadership. Giving speeches, according to CBO, is not budgeting. ”

“The president did inherit a tough problem. No two ways about it. What did he do with this problem? He drove us deeper into debt.” “A budget that the president gave us that doubles the debt in five years and triples it in ten years. That’s not leadership.”

“By the year 2025 three programs, social security, medicaid and medicare, plus our interest consume 100% of all federal revenue.”
