What liberal deficit reduction would look like

Ah, the workers paradise:

What liberal deficit reduction would look like | Philip Klein | Opinion | Washington Examiner: "The assault has not abated. Liberals and Democratic lawmakers have continued to tee off on Ryan, arguing that his GOP budget would cut the deficit on the backs of the poor and elderly, while doling out benefits to the rich.

Yet conspicuously absent from most liberal criticisms is any comparable attempt to confront the nation's unsustainable long-term debt crisis.

This is no accident.

It's much easier to attack a plan when the comparison is an imaginary world in which Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security can remain intact with little action from Washington, than it is to present a counterproposal that itself could become a target."
