GOP Senators Smart to Embrace Ryan Plan?
When you are hiking in the woods and become lost, the proper protocol is to stop going deeper and regain your bearings. Republicans who have been traditionally moderate who are now chasing the tea party are just becoming more lost. The Paul Ryan (D-Wis) budget and its Medicare implications are not just parlor talk: voters in NY-26 showed that it has little to no support at the ballot box. Stalwart Republicans like Snowe need to stand on their long records of accomplishment. That is the best defense against a primary challenge.
And to all my friends on Dean Heller's staff: rent; don't buy. Your boss is the only person to twice vote to end his career on the Hill.
