Republican budget is short-sighted, at the very least

Republican concern about the budget is dubious. I don't know how they can say they are concerned about federal spending when they cut entitlements to the poor or needy, but then turn around and give that same savings to corporations and the wealthy in tax breaks...amounting to little to zero in actual savings.

Quote from Bill Maher: "Well, that's their [the Republicans] dream world of no taxes, because as you know, the lower taxes are, somehow magically the more revenue we have. Isn't that really what Paul Ryan's plan is still based on? That fantasy that was discredited in the '80s?"
