Ron Paul is the only candidate serious about reducing the deficit and the national debt.
This fact was recently underscored by a study released by the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, a bipartisan think tank.
Newt Gingrich’s tax and budget plans would add $7 trillion to the debt over the remainder of the decade and Rick Santorum would do about the same.
Mitt Romney’s tax-cut and spending proposals would keep the deficit and debt on keel.
Ron Paul would reduce spending and slowly eliminate the debt by zeroing out a host of federal agencies. He would work to bring back honest money and sane economic policies by getting rid of the Federal Reserve – a prospect opposed by both sides of the establishment political party now ruling the roost in Washington.
“I think Ben Bernanke is a student of monetary policy,” said the declared Republican front-runner Mitt Romney last year, “he’s doing as good a job as he thinks he can do… I’m not going to spend my time going after Ben Bernanke. I’m not going to spend my time focusing on the Federal Reserve.”
Earlier this week, ABC News commentator Jonathan Karl was asked which candidate will reduce spending the most and he said Ron Paul.
He looked a bit sheepish about it but had to tell the truth despite the concerted effort by the establishment media to ignore Ron Paul.
