Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin slammed Rep. Paul Ryan’s (R-Wis.) proposed budget plan Thursday, claiming it would increase spending by $1.1 trillion over the next 10 years.

“Bless his heart,” she began. “He probably has more faith in politicians than I do, because I’ve been in this political arena on the local, state and now national level for a long time — and I don’t trust future legislative bodies to adhere to today’s legislative body, wishing 10 years from now they will cut some budget.”

Palin argued Ryan’s plan includes deficit spending, additional debt and “ultimately” increases spending over a decade $1.116 trillion.

“That’s trillion with a T, and that stands for trouble,” she said. “Future congressmen and women don’t have to obey what today’s congressmen and women wish for in terms of budget cuts that may happen in 10 years.”

Host Sean Hannity suggested the federal government cut one penny out of every dollar spent over the next six years and it would balance the budget.


In fairness, Paul Ryan was on Fox News earlier in the day to pitch his budget plan.

He claims his plan will not only balance the budget, but also cut $5 trillion in spending.
