    Despite 235 House Republicans voting for the Ryan budget in 2011 and the 228 again supporting it in 2012, now that it's almost November 2012 they want to pretend it never happened.

    Except those Republican candidates who are lucky enough not to have been in Congress to be called to vote on it, or the handful of Republicans (like Rep. Denny Rehberg, who's now running for the Senate in Montana) who were smart enough to vote against it--those folks are actively running against the Ryan plan.

    Ryan’s Budget Proposal Is Pitting G.O.P. Troops Against Top of the Ticket
    Even the leadership isn't guaranteeing they'll move in the next session on the plan they've already passed twice:
    Of course, they can't be trusted, as that's exactly what they said two years ago in August 2010:
    Turns out Ryan's plan actually was part of the Republican agenda after they took back control of the House. It was the centerpiece of it, in fact.

    And of course it will be again. It's good to see Democrats pushing back hard against this radical rightwing social engineering in races across the country. And just a bit bizarre to see Ryan has literally taking to hiding behind Mommy in a sad bid to insulate him from attacks against his assault on Medicare.

    There is no such thing as the Ryan Budget. It's been scrapped, long ago.

    Well at least we're not talking about some obscure non related topic in this thread. But I really don't think Ryan's budget is a winning issue for you all.

    Ryan's budget contains the same cuts. Then a few years later, his budget starts dismantling the program. Will you now join your comrades-in-arms and run from it?

    It last passed the House about four months ago (for the second time).
