Paul Ryan unveils new budget, invites society's productive members to flee country

House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., unveiled a budget plan Tuesday that invites that nation's brightest innovators and business leaders to leave the country and start a new society. By flying the nation's most excellent to a new secret civilization, the budget, titled "The Path to Prosperity: A Responsible, Balanced Budget for the Best" would achieve fiscal balance for the new population by 2023.

"All the men who will vanish, the men you hate, yet dread to lose, it is I who will take them away from you" Ryan began Tuesday at a news conference. "Do not attempt to find us. We do not choose to be found. Do not beg us to return. We are on strike, we, the men of mind."

Heavily influenced by Ryan's literary hero Ayn Rand, key elements of the new GOP budget include:
  • New society where each person can live and flourish through independent exercise of his rational mind
  • Government that can only protect individual rights
  • Economic freedom favoring diversity, dynamism, and big businesses
  • Each person gets the inalienable moral right to act as his own judgment to direct and to keep the product of his effort
  • Removal of all taxes, antitrust laws, minimum wage, public education, and child labor laws
The outline is different from the two previous budgets offered by House Republicans. Ryan acknowledged that some of the proposals are politically sensitive. In a statement, the White House criticized the plan stating it would hurt the middle class and protect the wealthy.

The conservative plan has little chance of being approved by democrats in the Senate, who are working on their own plan titled "Seven Commandments of Animalism."
