INVESTOR’S BUSINESS DAILY: Democrats Have Nothing to Offer But Fear Itself.
Asked why the Senate hasn’t produced a budget in three years, the head of the Democratic Party instead stoked fear about the “Romney-Ryan budget that ends Medicare as we know it.” FDR, call your office.
‘The Romney/Ryan budget is painful for Americans,” head Debbie Wasserman Schultz said on that same Fox News program.
Her comments are tame compared with what other Democrats have said, including President Obama, who called Rep. Paul Ryan’s budget “thinly veiled social Darwinism” that would “impose a radical vision on our country” and that is “antithetical to our entire history.”
So what do Democrats have to offer instead? Nothing.
The Senate hasn’t produced a budget since 2009 and refuses to this year, which means that once again the red-ink hemorrhaging federal government will be operating without any spending guidelines. Obama’s budget plan was so ludicrous that not one House Democrat would vote for it. . . .
Instead, they reflexively attack the Republicans who are actually proposing fixes, calling them terrorists and hostage-takers who are waging war on women, want to throw seniors off the cliff and savage the poor.
Today’s Democrats, in short, have just one public policy proposal — scare voters into re-electing them.
That’s going to be hard.
