That is one scary-ass graph
Paul Ryan lays out his "Path to Prosperity" with a graph that details "A choice of two futures." The status quo looks like a ski jump that ends somewhere around a debt level of 800% GDP, likely due to compounding interest.
Meanwhile, Democrat Chris Van Hollen tries his hand at stand-up comedy in this Hill article: "Dems 'likely' to offer budget alternative to Rep. Ryan's plan." Ha-ha, good one, Chris! Hey, do you know when would have been a good time to offer a budget plan? When you controlled the House of Representatives.
Can't wait to see the plan, Chris. Leadership!
