    Ryan on a Roll

    Ryan on a Roll

    My favorite Congressman, Paul Ryan, is really on the ball this Sunday.

    Today, he was on Fox discussing the end of looming tax hikes.

    He also had an op-ed published in one of his hometown newspapers. The deficit debate is not merely an exercise in arithmetic; it is also a conversation about the role and purpose of government.

It is a matter of numbers – how many are out there who want a welfare state.

    Ewwww. What's shocking is that they could be typical urban liberals.

    3. SAMHENRY, I'm not convinced that things are irreversible yet–but you could be right.

    @gs: They are typical for the Milwaukee area. I guarantee it.

    SAMHENRY, I would argue a la Bryan Caplan that there is no impetus to be an "educated voter." ("When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic." – Benjamin Franklin [on Barack Obama])
