'A Failure of Perspective'

The Club for Growth put out an odd statement in response to Paul Ryan's proposed budget. "Despite containing several important reforms and pro-growth policies, the Ryan Budget falls short in two critical respects," president Chris Chocola said.
He continues: "First, it does not balance for decades. Secondly, it violates the Budget Control Act by waiving the sequester. By waiving the automatic spending cuts required under the Budget Control Act, this budget is asking Americans to trust future Congresses to do the hard work later. It is hard to have confidence that our long-term fiscal challenges will be met responsibly when the same Congress that passed the Budget Control Act wants to ignore it less than one year later. On balance, the Ryan Budget is a disappointment for fiscal conservatives."
