Paul Ryan dismantles the myth of deficit netural healthcare reform
From what I’ve been reading, if the Republicans didn’t “win” the health care summit then at the very least they appeared to have held their own.
The tipping point appears to have been this exchange between congressman Paul Ryan and the President:
It was a pleasure to watch Ryan single-handedly dismantle the lies and the shell-game economics of the partisan healthcare proposals put forth by Obama and the Democrats.
[Ryan] just launched a full-bore assault on the faulty assumptions behind the claim that the Obama health care plan will reduce the deficit. Obama didn’t even bother questioning Ryan’s presentation. He changed the subject to Medicare Advantage.
The expression on the president’s face as Ryan made his case was absolutely priceless. Simply put, he looked like someone who realizes he’s met his match.
