Right Wing Playing Up Rep. Paul Ryan as Victim of Media criticism for Draconian "Road for America's Future."

Poor Rep. Paul Ryan is getting picked on for his "Road Map for a Dickensian America" at the American Prospect.

And my conservative friend made it perfectly clear to me today; Health care rationing is going to happen anyway, so why not give each citizen the freedom to self ration care and medicine.

After a whole year of Republican hero's defending Americans against health care reforms that would end up killing grandma and lead to government rationing, "fiscal genius" Rep. Paul Ryan is now okay with rationing, as long as it's a mind wrenching torcherous personal decision. Inhumane? Sure. But does it save federal dollars? You bet.

Rep. Paul Ryan's plan is simple: He will cut federal spending on Medicare and Social Security so he can say the government is saving money and balancing the books, all the while shifting the costs and spending to Americans on fixed incomes and failing health.

My born again conservative friend is fine with that too, because it does away with big goverment.

Remember this from a few days ago?

Washington Post blogger Ezra Klein calls it rationing, since he believes seniors would have to buy less comprehensive policies and cut back on care. Ryan, in an interview with Klein, argues that the programs are growing themselves into extinction, and his plan at least gives seniors the choice to choose the care they receive. Said Ryan: "Rationing happens today! The question is who will do it? The government? Or you, your doctor and your family?"
The critics of health care rationing are now advocating health care rationing. Got it?
