    Is this just Ryan trying to get people off of his "kill MediCare" message?

    Sounds good to me. Let's cut subsidies and cut the red tape. Let them earn their money by producing gasoline for us to use.

    I swear, this is more and more like the Reagan revolution. The idealogues kept proposing cutting this and that, and the establishment pols kept slapping the knife away.

    Cutting subsidies to anyone, or any group, is not going to be popular with any side you chose in Washington.

    Even though it is the right thing to do........
