Re: Paul Ryan single-handedly eliminates the individual mandate
I really don't get why people were talking about how courageous or new his ideas where.
he was trying to do to medicare what Bush tried to do with social security.
he was trying to reduce the already historically low top bracket tax rates, as Bush repeatedly did.
his plan was, under incredibly generous assumptions that bear no relationship to reality, deficit neutral, and with any reasonable set of assumptions, would further explode the deficit. (again, like Bush)
I just don't see how this is anything other than Bush.2.
I hope that Ryan goes down in history as the Catfood Kid.
