Lyin' Paul Ryan and the end of Medicare

Esquire's politics blog doesn't pull any punches:

Zombie-eyed granny-starver Paul Ryan of Wisconsin is having a tough year. First, he comes out with a plan to "reform" Medicare in the same way that an iceberg once "reformed" the White Star shipping line. Many people including (at the time) Newt Gingrich laughed at his mighty brain...

...Here's the thing, kids. Paul Ryan wants to end Medicare. Period. He has a philosophical objection to it. He doesn't think it's the government's job. However, he can't go for an up-or-down vote on this because he would lose about eleventy-bajillion-to-one. So, he's put together a plan to let Medicare "die on the vine," the strategy proposed by current GOP frontrunner Newt Gingrich so pithily back in 1995.
