NATE SILVER OF "FIVE THIRTY-EIGHT" EXPLAINS THE GOP BUDGET PROPOSAL




In their eagerness to answer President Obama's challenge to come up with an alternative budget, the Republican leadership unveiled their budget yesterday to a skeptical public. John Boehner tried to explain how giving more tax cuts to the top 1 percent wealthiest Americans would increase revenues, but was unable to complete his explanation due to the ear-splitting derisive laughter coming from reporters--mainstream, liberal, and conservative.

DISCLAIMER: No teleprompters were used in the reporting of this story.

UPDATE: The GOP will deliver their detailed budgetWednesday.
Wednesday, April 1.
April Fool's Day.
The GOP is now promising to deliver its budget on April Fool's Day.

It's healthy to interrupt the sometimes depressing dealings with our serious problems, with a little humor.

A budget without numbers - that's precious!

Interesting proposal from the GOP.

Much more nuanced & comprehensive than I'd supposed.

Weepy John Boehner is, as always, a marvel.

Heh. Heh.

I didn't notice any funding for deregulation on there Shaw. That must be on the next installment.
