GOP Budget Cartoons

Today, House Republican Budget Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) released the GOP's latest budget proposal, and as expected, it's filled with tax cuts for the rich, cuts to entitlements and an overhaul of MedicareUnder the plan, the six current tax brackets would be collapsed into two: a 25 percent bracket for top earners, and a 10 percent bracket for everyone else.

The proposal has little chance of becoming law, but it puts GOP Presidential hopefuls in a tough spot of embracing or reject items that could cary political risk. Remember last time around Romney hedged for months in terms of his support for the plan. "I appreciate what Paul Ryan has done," the candidate said last May. "I'm going to have my own plan." Even Newt Gingrich distanced himself from Ryan's last proposal, referring to it as "right-wing social engineering."

I guess if it shifts the conversation away from birth control and women's health, it's a good thing. Here's what our cartoonists think...
