Paul Ryan’s unveiling our budget proposal for the next 10 years–cuts over $6 trillion and reforms our government. Smart, bold, proposal. 5 Apr

10 concluding thoughts on Ryan’s budget
By Ezra Klein
….The idea that conservatives believe the savings in Ryan’s plan are realistic while those in the Affordable Care Act aren’t boggles the mind. For one thing, Ryan includes the supposedly unrealistic savings from the Affordable Care Act; they can’t be realistic in Ryan’s budget but not realistic in the ACA. For another, the ACA’s savings are more modest, and the law has many, many more ways to attain them than simply saying “the government promises not to spend more than inflation, even if spending less means millions of seniors and disabled Americans will have no health care….”
The reviews keep coming in. Paul Ryan laid an egg. And Vicky Hartzler is content to clap louder.
