President Obama says he wants to have an "adult conversation" about entitlement reform. So far, the most prominent Democrat to comment on Ryan's budget has resorted to juvenile sloganeering.
The Democrats' leader in the House of Representatives tweets:
·Path to subsidies to oil companies and giveaways to special interests
·Path to tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans and companies that ship jobs overseas
·Path to cuts in kids’ education
·Path to slashing support for seniors, children, and Americans with disabilities on Medicaid
It’s time for Republicans to join with Democrats to create jobs, strengthen the middle class, and responsibly reduce the deficit.
