    And this is why our debt problem will not get fixed. People say they want the government to reduce spending, but they don't want them to actually cut anything. We're our own worst enemy.

    Would that majority include the half of Americans that don't pay income tax? Hard to believe they're for more spending.

    Ending Medicare isn't popular? Who knew?

    In fairness to "people," I don't believe anyone ran on this platform in the last election. In fact, Boehner specifically said Ryan's policy proposals would not be the party's agenda if the party took control of the House. That, of course, has turned out not to be true and the "Ryan plan" is now "the Republican budget." Ryan may have owned it when he unveiled it on April 5, but the rest of the party took ownership when they almost unanimously passed it out of the House on April 15. Now that the Senate has voted for it there are what, nine Republicans in federal office who haven't voted for it?

    It's no longer just Paul Ryan that wants to dismantle Medicare, it's the entire Republican party. And I suspect most people didn't realize that would be the case seven months ago.
