Nick Gillespie on Why The Paul Ryan/GOP Budget is a Non-Starter for Libertarians


The 2014 budget plan authored by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and House Republicans, writes Nick Gillespie,

…will be "better" than the Senate's long-awaited plan—at four years in the making, you've got to wonder if the ghost of slow-poke film director Stanley Kubrick is guiding that sad-sack document. And it will surely be "better" than the president's—already late in turning in this year's document, Obama has signaled that he's not signing on to anything that doesn't reverse the sequester's cancellation of White House tours and other core functions of government.

But being "better" than plans that will be put forth by political opponents shouldn't be mistaken for being "good," or even worthy of support.
