Quote of the Day

From Kevin Drum:

In any kind of serious proposal, you’d expect the author to at least make a few nods in the direction of bipartisanship. They might be fake, but at least they’d be there. But not Ryan. His proposal is a 100% tea party wet dream: Do away with one of the Democratic Party’s signature achievements of the 20th century. Slash spending on social programs for the poor. Use the reduced spending to make room for tax cuts on corporations and the rich. Put a hard cap on federal outlays that’s almost absurdly low. Give the Pentagon everything it wants. And stitch it all together with supply-side voodoo economics and budget projections so laughable they’re almost designed to be insulting.
