Even Big Jim Sensenbrenner backs away from Ryan's Medicare plan

Wow.

 

Confronted by a 54-year-old constituent at a town meeting in his district on Sunday, all Rep. F. James Sensenbrenner -- the extreme conservative who represents one of the safest districts in the country, which happens to border Paul Ryan's -- wouldn't defend Ryan's Medicare plan. According to the the best Sensenbrenner could come up with was:

"I'm not here to say he's (Ryan) right or he's wrong, but at least he's got a plan."

Not exactly a vote of confidence, even though Sensebrenner, like almost every other Republican in the House, voted for Ryan's budget plan which included the Medicare changes.
