This passage from Fox News Sunday that was published on Slate this morning is really quite remarkable. After an election in which the American people very clearly turned down a Republican presidential candidate in favor of President Obama, Paul Ryan knows that the American people really want Obamacare to be repealed.
REP. RYAN: These are increases that have not come yet. So, by repealing "Obamacare", and the Medicaid expansions which haven't occurred yet, we are basically preventing an explosion of a program that is already failing. So, we're saying don't grow this program through "Obamacare" because it doesn't work...
MR. WALLACE: I'm going to pick up on this because I must say I didn't understand it. Are you saying that as part of your budget, you would repeal, you assume the repeal of "Obamacare"?
REP. RYAN: Yes.
MR. WALLACE: Well, that's not going to happen.
REP. RYAN: Well, we believe it should. That's the point. That's what's — but this is what budgeting is all about, Chris. It's about making tough choices to fix our country's problems.
So Ryan is going to continue to build his little fantasy budgets for the America that voted three-to-one for a Romney/Ryan ticket, even though reality looks nothing like that America. This makes his budget into nothing more than Atlas Shrugged fanfic.
