It should come as no surprise to anyone that Governor Sarah Palin endorsed Rep. Paul Ryan’s 2012 budget plan that includes $6.2 trillion in budget cuts as a good start, and a “serious and necessary” step.
There is hope! Serious & necessary leadership rolls out serious & necessary reform proposal. Good start (from Dec. http://on.wsj.com/eP0Kwo)She links to an op-ed she wrote several months ago, endorsing Ryan’s “Roadmap for America’s Future” via the Wall Street Journal:
In my view, a better plan is the Roadmap for America’s Future produced by Rep. Paul Ryan (R., Wisc.). The Roadmap offers a reliable path to long-term solvency for our entitlement programs, and it does so by encouraging personal responsibility and independence.She did this when there were some Republicans who were hesitant to support Ryan’s bold step. Palin’s endorsement brought prominence to Ryan’s plan and a boost to giving attention to the congressman who has bold ideas to get this economy going again.
More from The Hill:
Ryan’s budget proposal has already received praise from potential presidential candidates such as former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R) and former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.)Please head over to Conservatives 4 Palin where Whitney Pitcher did a stupendous job in illuminating the public on entitlement reforms Palin enacted while governor in Alaska. Worth a read.
Their statements on Ryan’s budget will be closely scrutinized, because observers have said it could loom large over the campaign landscape. Pawlenty was the first possible candidate to release a statement on the budget…
Palin has said she remains interested in running for president in 2012, but has not yet said when or if she will officially announce her intention to run.
