Everything you need to know about the budget debates in 1.5 paragraphs

From Think Progress

"We thought we’d keep it real simple and break down who gets to sacrifice and who gets off easy if the GOP gets its way.
ON the GOP’s chopping block:
NOT on the GOP’s chopping block:
In one sentence: The GOP is willing to risk another economic calamity when we can least afford it if that’s what it takes to protect tax breaks for the wealthy, Big Oil, and huge corporations — tax breaks paid for by ending Medicare, slashing Medicaid and Social Security, and cutting the government programs and services we depend on each and every day."
Bush, Boehner, Cantor and their republican friends went on an 8 year credit card spending spree, and now they want the middle class, public employees, teachers, unions, and the elderly to pay the bill.  No way.
