Fixing Healthcare The Right Way

One more reason Paul Ryan is my favorite member of Congress (low bar to clear overall, but there are some standouts) is right here.  The Democrats are running political ads showing a Ryan lookalike pushing granny off a cliff because Ryan had the audacity to recognize that Medicare is going bankrupt and proposed a way to fx it which included (gasp) beenfit cuts for people who aren't retired yet.  The Democrats, of course, continue their fiscal policy of pretending there isn't a problem and then pretending it can all be fixed if we tax the rich to seize back everything the leprechans gave them. 

What does Ryan do?  He doubles down, with a plan to fix the healthcare system, one that's market-driven and makes sense (as opposed to pseudo-government-run and inherently contradictory, i.e. Obamacare).  And the best news -- if anyone can sell this, Paul Ryan can do it.
