Heartland Institute Senior Fellow Peter Ferrara – a budget expert and former member of the Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush administrations – has examined the 2012 budget unveiled this week by House Budget Committee Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI). He can break it down in detail for your audience and offer historical perspective.

Ferrara wrote in The American Spectator:

“Before Paul Ryan’s 2012 budget released yesterday, the Liberal Establishment was telling us that what was needed was an adult conversation on the budget and entitlements. Now that they have got their adult conversation, they can’t handle it.”

Ferrara wrote about the GOP budget for Pajamas Media:

“The talk of the government shutdown this week and the negligible cuts of $30 billion to even $70 billion are a sideshow ... The main event is Ryan’s 2012 budget, which is a complete blueprint for federal budget policy for the next 10 years, changing course for decades into the future. Don’t fail to appreciate Ryan’s budget in all of its carefully crafted, beautiful complexity. For what it proposes is effectively to repeal the Obama administration and save America from a death spiral decline into bankruptcy.”
