Rep. Paul Ryan’s proposed budget is a decidely mixed bag, according to a trio of Cato scholars. Tad DeHaven is the most critical, commenting, “What makes the Ryan proposal aggravating is that it’s hardly a vision of limited government. The president promises big government and Ryan promises smaller big government.” But Michael D. Tanner arguesthat, “while timid and imperfect, Ryan’s plan shows that Republicans are at least looking in the right direction,” a sentiment echoed by Daniel J. Mitchell: “It’s is a step in the right direction, but much more will be needed to restore limited, constitutional government.”
