GOP Presidential Candidates and “The Path to Prosperity”

GOP Presidential Candidates and “The Path to Prosperity”

The “Path to Prosperity” budget proposal passed through the House with sole support from Republican Congressmen.  Paul Ryan (R-WI), the captain of the proposal, says this bill has a better chance of being supported when considered against Obama’s budget proposal.  While Ryan’s proposal  has little Republican opposition, Obama’s bill has both Republican and Democratic opposition.

Current GOP Presidential Candidates weigh in on the conservative proposal after seeing its success through the House:

“The House budget and my own plan share the same path forward: pro-growth tax cuts, getting federal spending under control, and strengthening entitlement programs for future generations. I look forward to working with congress to achieve fiscal discipline and passing a budget that moves us toward a simpler, smarter, and smaller federal government,” — Mitt Romney.

“It is five trillion dollars in cuts over 10 years; we need five trillion dollars in cuts in five years, if we are going to balance this budget,” — Rick Santorum.

“What he’s introduced this year is dramatically better, very defendable.  I admire both his intelligence and his courage because he’s doing a lot of things,” — Newt Gingrich

“The Ryan budget reduces the federal government’s debt burden by trillions of dollars yet it does so in decades and not immediately, as our severe debt crisis warrants,” — Ron Paul.
