Alan Simpson Praises Paul Ryan

You remember him, that former Senator that was chosen by Barack Obama to chair the Presidents "National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform"? The 5 Democrat, 5 Republican Commission that Obama ended up ignoring because he didn't like that they recommended fiscal responsibility?

Yeah that guy.

Well it seems he both agrees with AND praises Paul Ryan. Check out what he has to say about MediCare Spending on Bloomberg TV:

Comments on Paul Ryan:
Former Sen. Alan Simpson Praises Ryan Pick - Washington Wire - WSJ
Quote:
“He’s a very rare breed of political type in Washington D.C.,” Mr. Simpson said of Mr. Ryan. “He’s got guts. Real guts. Because of that, they’ll savage him. But he’s tough. He can take it.” Mr. Simpson predicted liberal groups and some Democrats would try and pummel Mr. Ryan for his proposals to rework Medicare. He said, for example, that liberal groups would claim that “granny will be thrown off the top of the Empire State Building, and then they’ll start breaking bed pans.” (EDIT: They already started)

He said these attacks won’t slow Mr. Ryan down.
“He’s going to tell Americans what they need to hear and not what they want to hear,” Mr. Simpson said. “He knows his numbers. He knows his facts. He’s serious and he’s smart.”
