OK, Progressive Zone dude, we now have a Paul Ryan proposed budget to react to, a looming debt ceiling, and GOP presidential contenders weighing in. What is the way forward on the budget/deficit?

The way forward will require both cutting spending and enhancing revenues. Taking an absolute stand on "no new taxes" is neither realistic nor effective. And Americans will need to accept some difficult losses or cuts in programs if we're going to run a budget surplus.
