David Harsanyi on Why Barack Obama and Congressional Democrats Hate Paul Ryan's Budget


The administration isn't serious about the debt, because like most politicians, Barack Obama doesn't care. Not a whit. Democrats are willing to move heaven and earth for the things they do care about. They were prepared to whip up political turmoil and put the presidency and Congress on the line to pass Obamacare. Yet they won't risk offering a budget, lest anyone glimpse their priorities. And we could tax all the millionaires into poverty, writes David Harsanyi, and it wouldn't make a dent without reforming spending.
