‘I’ll take ‘budget fantasy’ for a thousand, Alex’

Let’s play Jeopardy!

OK, does everybody have their buzzers ready? Here’s the answer:

jeopardy

The correct question is:

“Who are authors of great works of fantasy, Alex?”

I’ve been reading through Paul Ryan’s latest “budget” document, and I have to say that I’m impressed. The world down the Ryan rabbit hole rivals anything created by the other three fantasy authors listed above. It is a place where the impossible is made real, and where obstacles such as the Great Abyss of Illogic and the Chasm of Implausibility are reduced to mere cracks in the sidewalk by prodigious leaps of imagination and acts of “let’s pretend”.

For example, just as Rowling’s work requires us to believe in witches, and Tolkien’s work in the existence of dwarves and elves, the creator of RyanWorld instructs us to pretend that by 2050, spending on all federal programs other than Social Security and the major health care programs will amount to no more than 3.75 percent of the nation’s GDP. That belief is a fundamental building block for the rest of Ryan’s financial structure.

Now, why is that so implausible? Well, today we spend 12.5 percent of GDP on those programs, so right off the top we’re talking about a 70 percent reduction in the share of our wealth going to such efforts. And I can already see many readers nodding their heads out there, believing that to be a good thing.

But let’s take a closer look, shall we? In addition to such things as veterans’ health care, transportation infrastructure, student loans, the National Parks System and air traffic control, the category in question includes all of our spending on national defense.

This year, spending on defense alone amounts to 4.6 percent of GDP, which makes it rather problematic to reduce total spending in this category to 3.75 percent of GDP.

Or as the Congressional Budget Office drily notes:

“By comparison, spending in this category has exceeded 8 percent of GDP in every year since World War II. Spending for defense alone has not been lower than 3 percent of GDP in any year during that period.”

To make RyanWorld come true, in other words, we would have to eliminate absolutely everything in the federal budget except Social Security, defense and health care. And even after doing all that, we would still be forced to cut the share of national wealth that we devote to defense by almost 20 percent.

But don’t worry: As if to compound the make-believe character of his proposal, Ryan reassures us that national defense will be the nation’s number one budgetary priority and that he intends to block across-the-board spending cuts at the Pentagon agreed to just last year.

Now, let’s turn to the revenue side of the equation.

While slashing federal health subsidies for poor people by some 75 percent, Ryan proposes to lower the top tax rate of 35 percent to 25 percent, a great boon to the richest of Americans.

In addition, he would not just reform but eliminate the Alternative Minimum Tax, which was originally designed to ensure that the most affluent taxpayers at least paid something. He also proposes to reduce the corporate tax rate from 35 to 25 percent, another boon to the affluent. Finally, he proposes to eliminate corporate taxes on profits earned overseas, which would add another incentive to companies to relocate offshore.

Is anyone sensing a theme here?

Oh, and Ryan would do all that yet somehow not reduce revenue to the federal government. He doesn’t tell us how such magic will be performed, only that it will. He also ordered the CBO to treat that fantasy as reality when it assessed the impact of his plan.

While it followed those orders, CBO made clear in its report that it wasn’t necessarily buying it:

“In particular, CBO has not considered whether the specified paths are consistent with the policy proposals or budget figures released today by Chairman Ryan as part of his proposed budget resolution.”

Again, Ryan has offered no specifics about how he would turn down into up. However, based on what is publicly known, the Tax Policy Center ran the numbers to try to ascertain the fiscal impact of these cuts:

“The Tax Policy Center estimates that a similar corporate rate cut, AMT repeal, and a two-rate individual system would reduce revenues by about $4.5 trillion through 2022, even after accounting for the $5.4 trillion cost of extending the 2001/2003 tax cuts. In 2022 alone, a Ryan-like plan would reduce revenues by about $600 billion.

To put it another way, TPC figures such a tax package would generate revenues of about 15.8 percent of Gross Domestic Product in 2022. His budget aims to collect about 18.7 percent. That means he’d have to find about $700 billion in new revenues by cutting tax preferences.”

Let’s stretch our imaginations still further. Let’s pretend that Ryan is actually serious about cutting tax preferences. Where might he turn to find the missing revenue?

According to the Joint Committee on Taxation, the single biggest such expenditure is the deduction on mortgage interest. The second largest allows employers to deduct the cost of health insurance. The third largest allows employers to deduct pension contributions.

Who do you think would be hurt hardest by abolishing such deductions? It would be the middle-class taxpayer whom Ryan, in yet another flight of fantasy, claims to be defending.

In “Alice in Wonderland,” the Queen of Hearts bragged that “sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” But even the Queen would be hard-pressed to believe all this.

So, Jay, you’re assertion is that lowering taxes and lowering federal expenditures is going to create a massive budget deficit? At least that’s what I’m reading. Unless you’re just against the idea of reining in federal expenditures all together. Let’s look at the numbers here and see if Jay is living in a world where he ignores facts or not.

Okay, so currently (found by doing a quick Google search, so it could be not entirely accurate), the US GDP is $14.59 Trillion. Which means that currently, the Federal Government is spending about $1.82 Trillion (using Jay’s 12.5% GDP number). So, if we reduce that number down to the proposed 3.75% GDP, we have federal expenditures down $1.273 Trillion to $547 Billion. But it is a problem that this plan will reduce taxes by $600 Billion? I may not have a degree in economics or math, but it seems to me like we’ll still have over $600 Billion left over to pay down debts, or to call a surplus or whatever. So, I’m confused as to where the problem lies. Maybe Jay can explain which rabbit hole I’m wandering down by taking his numbers, looking at them exactly like the CBO would, and doing the math. Or is it that I’m doing something wrong by actually looking at the numbers? Am I supposed to just be outraged that someone is proposing a budget that lowers taxes and spending? Seems to me like that is a good thing.

I would not consider that foreign profits ( and for fact I don’t know for sure either) and it will not be taxed as such…Now, if my American company made goods here for sale overseas, that’s a different animal and likely labeled foreign profits, and I likely already paid taxes on that over there…so taxing me again on that here will only encourage me to move my operation to where the sales are

As usual you’re lying and wrong.

The Republicans wanted Obama to give up plans to raise the tax rate paid by the wealthiest Americans, now set at 35 percent. Instead, they wanted that rate to go down. … Another key caveat: Much of the $800 billion would have to come from overhauling the tax code — not from higher tax rates. The Republicans believed lower rates and a simpler code would generate new revenue by discouraging cheating and spurring economic growth. If the White House would agree to count that money, the Republican leaders said, then they might have a deal.

The $800 billion over a decade was going to come from two sources: a) faster economic growth from tax reform (lowering rates and eliminating deductions) and b) greater tax compliance from a simpler system. That doesn’t sound like a tax hike to me.

Forget trying to reason with liberals…………. they won’t understand that the Democratically controlled Senate hasn’t passed a budget………. they will think its the fault of the Republican controlled House………. let alone that the one Obama budget they put up for a vote lost 97-0 with NO DEMOCRATS for it.

Regarding the American Thoracic Society statement that climate change “will” result in health problems is significantly different than saying it “has” resulted in health problems. Words and context have meanings. The American Thoracic Society is admitting no proof thus far of harm to health caused by climate change.

Of course you would be severely naive to believe that Jay actually did the Ryan budget analysis himself. Maybe Paul Krugman gave him a hand. Aside from Jay’s dismissal of Ryan’s proposal but given the extreme seriousness of our growing deficit the Democrats should be ashamed to answer why they’ve done nothing substantive to address this national economic crises other than whining about not taxing the wealthy sufficiently enough.

Barack Obama is a multi millionaire. He has acquired his wealth by being an elected politician. He is part of the one percent he hypocriticaly condems. Please note he does not believe in “redistribution” of his wealth as he proved with his miserly charitable contributions. He believes in redistribution of your wealth. Right now he is redistributing your wealth at the gas pump, the grocery store and through your taxes to his political cronies at places like Solyndra, General Motors, Chrysler, and any one of a numberof his campaign contributors. His administration recently gave a huge tax break to Warren Buffet’s Net Jet. That money comes from you. Watch Obama’s actions. I can’t hear his words because his actions are too loud.
