Giving millionaires one more tax break...the Ryan Plan

The following is from Crooks & Liars "Video Cafe" -

A conservative radio host says that the Catholic nuns who have embarked on a nine-state bus tour to protest the injustice of Rep. Paul Ryan's (R-WI) proposed budget deserve to be beaten with a handgun because they "threw the first punch."

"There's a bus full of nuns headed towards Washington to lobby against the Ryan plan" radio host Jan Mickelson told Rep. Tom Latham (R-IA) last week.  "Do you guys, do you have any power to pull the nuns on the bus over and pistol whip them>"

[Note the lack of civility, decency, common sense, or understanding of the freedoms guaranteed to the people by the U.S. Constitution.  This seems to be representative of GOPers and their sharks in the media waters these days!]

C & L notes:  "The non-partisan Center for Budget and Policy Priorities found that nearly two-thirds of the cuts proposed in Ryan's budget would be to programs serving low-income Americans, while ... [his] tax cuts would largely benefit millionaires.  People making more than $1 million a year would see a 12.5 percent increase in after-tax income but those making less than $20,000 would see ... [a] decrease of 0.2 percent or less."
