Obama should follow Ryan's lead on balanced budget

Congressman Paul Ryan has laid out a balanced budget for this country and President Barack Obama still ended up proposing a budget that is nowhere near balanced. The president's budget proposes that the government spends $3.77 trillion, which is even more than last year's budget. It is almost impossible to believe Obama when he says his budget will erase the deficit after hearing this outrageous amount. The only way Obama will even have a chance at lowering the deficit is if he greatly increases taxes.

It's easy for Obama to say that this type of budget, or lack of, will help the economy. However, when the budget does not even balance, it's hard to picture a growing economy. This is hard to comprehend since I know that each and every day families are confronted with the hardships that have followed from this struggling economy. The focus needs to be on jobs, which is especially shown through Wisconsin's success. Gov. Scott Walker was able to take the deficit that he began his term with and turn it into a surplus. Obama should utilize a balanced budget approach like the one proposed by Ryan if he is truly concerned for our future as a country.
