Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee: ( petition )
Reject the radical Paul Ryan Budget. Sign the petition. BREAKING – House Republicans are at it again – trying to pass a radical Paul Ryan budget plan that will give billionaires and corporations enormous tax breaks while destroying Medicare as we know it. This budget is wrong for America, and it would obliterate all of the progress President Obama has made in getting our economy back on track.
Senate Democrats are standing against this plan, but they need your help. Will you add your name to our petition and help them reject this extreme budget plan? Democrats need to know right now that they’ve got 50,000 grassroots activists supporting them.
Click here to add your name and stand against the Paul Ryan budget!
Coddling billionaires and punishing the middle class is the wrong budget approach. Please sign our petition, support Senate Democrats, and dump the Paul Ryan plan.

Paul Ryan’s budget in summary :
Excerpt from summary:
a) Tax reform: “Reform the tax code by consolidating the current six brackets and cutting the top individual rate from 35 percent to 25 percent.”
b) Tax revenue: Prevents the Bush tax cuts from expiring in 2013. So the revenue-neutral tax reform locks in today’s rates, which is to say it makes the Bush cuts permanent.
c) Corporate taxes: Lowers corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 25 percent. “This budget would offset lower rates with a broader base, scaling back or eliminating entirely the deductions.”
