Do you 'appreciate' Social Security slash?

Posted By on Fri, Feb 12, 2010 at 2:36 PM

Elaboration is needed, but Rep. John Boozman is off on the wrong foot in his response to where he stands on Rep. Paul Ryan's plan to slash Social Security and Medicare as part of a grand budget plan. From Talking Points Memo:

As we started calling Republicans about this issue in the last week, Boozman's Congressional office told us that he appreciates the Ryan plan. He also blasted President Obama's budget as "irresponsible" and "totally unsustainable."

"Congressman Ryan is working to cut the deficit spending and I appreciate his commitment to putting our country on the road to fiscal responsibility. His proposal may not be perfect, but I think he is making a thoughtful and serious effort to prevent Congress from driving our country into financial ruin," Boozman said in a statement.
