After Newt Gingrich came on Meet the Press last week and had the unfortunate circumstance of finding out what happens to any Republican who dares to tell the truth about Paul Ryan's budget plan, Ryan got a chance to respond this week. Apparently Ryan hasn't figured out yet that his plan to turn Medicare into a voucher system or going after Social Security isn't going to be popular with the voters, ever. Ryan is delusional enough to believe that somehow the Republicans are going to be able to "move the polls" on the issue.
He also agrees with Freedom Works Dick Armey and Matt Kibbe that "entitlement reform" or a.k.a. dismantling our social safety nets should be a litmus test for any Republican running for office in 2012. I find it astounding that they actually think jumping off that cliff together is a good idea.
