Paul Ryan's vision:David Brooks
(who likes it): (emp add)

(who doesn't): (emp add)
If you can get past the fuzzy math and sheer indifference to the poor, it's possible to discern a coherent conceit in the Ryan plan: that the burden of maintaining a modern welfare state has become too great to bear.
Which is what you'd expect an Ayn Rand disciple to think: Welfare state. Bad!
David Brooks must be ignoring Paul Krugman's Blog on Ryan. Must be a social thing, with David's new book.
