Quiner’s DM Register column acknowledged on Congressman Paul Ryan’s Facebook page

By Tom Quiner

The Des Moines Register ran a Quiner’s Diner post from a few days ago in today’s print and online editions: “Ryan’s federal budget plan is bold and compassionate.”

Tom Quiner’s article in today’s Des Moines Register was referenced on Congressman Paul Ryan’s Facebook page.

I’m pleased to note that Congressman Ryan’s office got wind of it and posted it on his Facebook page.

I clearly riled up a lot of folks by invoking the word “compassionate” in describing his budget. It is compassionate because it maintains our social safety net while still being sustainable.

On the other hand, President Obama’s budget is not sustainable, according to the Congressional Budget Office. Nothing compassionate about profligacy.
