-- go any further well joining us now Brian -- senior fellow for government studies at The Heritage Foundation.
Brian the Ryan plan you know obviously pass the house.
How does it look with respect to this in -- him what are the things about it that you like him probably don't like.
It doesn't look in the senate senate majority leader Harry Reid is already declared that the senate will not take up a budget and they haven't done on the past three years so.
It's not to be expected that they'll take went up this year they're just terrified of taking a position.
On any of the top issues.
And what I like about the Ryan -- and one of the reasons why the senate won't take it up is because.
The Ryan plan starts us down the road of entitlement reform.
It looks at Medicare and block granting Medicare to the state Medicaid to the states.
If it goes to our premium support plan to help seniors.
To empower themselves to make important health care decisions it takes obamacare Roosevelt the door -- replaces it with a different system.
That'll be much more consumer oriented in consumer base.
It's incremental in the sense doesn't cut as much as many people have liked.
But it's still a massive nineteen billion dollar cut over the debt limit.
Agreement from want.
Without a doubt a whole lot of economic -- on both sides of the -- particular Republicans -- Ryan didn't go far enough doubt.
On the other have we have -- president Obama's budget which was voted down.
Zero people zero congress members voted for port report being voted against -- what how does that -- -- what was it about the plan.
That -- Democrats and Republicans that life.
Well no Democrat wants to be married to this plan the Democrats actually rolled out an alternative plan.
In the house that they force to vote on but you remember last year the -- took about an Obama Obama budget and it was unanimously defeated and the problem is it's just too much taxes.
Massive hike in tax increases a massive amount of debt for future generations which would double the debt in the next eight years tripled the debt in the next twelve years.
It's just too much and nobody wants to be associated with the president Obama's budget I think he's the only one in Washington DC your America that wants to be.
Looked upon as -- guy who wants to bring this new big government vision for America.
But you know there's a thing O'Brien it's been over a thousand days since this country's had a budget -- bills like maybe a Washington DC the becoming comfortable with the idea.
We can keep -- that -- -- mind boggling to anyone watching this who -- a household budget on the week that we maybe month to month basis.
How much longer can we live like this of the nation.
I'm not much longer we are going down the road agrees if we keep this up and what does the budget -- basically to house and the senate sitting down.
Coming to an agreement for how much are gonna spend at the end of the year for the next fiscal year it's like you sit down at the beginning of the month you look at how much money gonna take and you don't overspend and you set up a game plan what congress -- doing that they come to the end of the year and our ending up with.
Earlier in dollar deficits every single here is is outrageous we really appreciate -- Brian -- from The Heritage Foundation thanks a lot.
