House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan is working on a budget that a spokesman says will balance in 10 years, according to a spokesman.
“Chairman Ryan looks forward to working with his colleagues to draft a responsible budget by the April 15 deadline. He hopes last week’s agreement helps spur action by his Senate counterparts to do the same,” Budget Committee spokesman Will Allison said. “With the right reforms put in place, Chairman Ryan’s goal is to advance a budget that balances within a decade.”
This is an exercise in futility. Past history has shown that other attempts to balance the budget were quickly thrown aside with the next congress and members immediately trying to void it. This has no hope of getting past Reid in the first place and as in the past when provisions are slated for the future it will be abandoned.
