MOTHER JONES admits: RYAN’S RIGHT on MEDICARE! AWAITING the APOLOGY?

I was amazed by this article in the progressive Mother Jones magazine about VP nominee Paul Ryan.  Here’s the conclusion:

The problem here is simple: there is no silver bullet liberal response to Ryan’s Medicare charges. This is because, rhetorical excesses aside, his charges are basically correct.

Why would Mother Jones concede the most contentious point in the 2012 election?  Because they want to make this point instead:

Unlike most Republican programs of the Bush era, Obamacare is fully paid for — as Obama himself has boasted repeatedly. This was an act of political courage for which Democrats deserve credit, but it was only courageous because it has a downside. And the downside is that the money to pay for Obamacare had to come from somewhere. In the end, most of it came from two places: (1) an assortment of modest tax increases, and (2) an assortment of modest spending reductions on Medicare.

Of course, that may also be disputed.  But I am pleased to see that Paul Ryan is essentially right.  He is awaiting the apology…might be a long wait.

    Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
