Those Rose-Colored Figures In The GOP Budget? They're Gone Now - UPDATED

The unemployment table in the report written by Paul Ryan and with information from the Heritage Foundation, the one that concluded that unemployment would be 2.8 percent by 2021, has simply vanished from the latest downloadable version of the report.

Paul Krugman said that the Ryan budget must have been written by people who believe in unicorns. Maybe that's an exaggeration, but it was written by people who believe there are magicians who can make unpleasant numbers disappear.

AFTERTHOUGHT:  Rachel Maddow has a good segment on Ryan's budget.

UPDATE: Dean Baker does the numbers.
