Is Scott Brown already on record as supporting Paul Ryan’s budget – which, as we know, might as well be entitled the “Medicare Destruction Act of 2011”? I’m not sure he’s said so in so many words before, but he did yesterday, up in Newburyport.
Brown discussed the ongoing budget deliberations in similar terms, suggesting the process could be streamlined to greater effect.
“The leaders will bring forward (Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan’s) budget, and I will vote for it, and it will fail,” he said. “Then the president will bring forward his budget, and it will fail.
“It will be great fodder for the commercials.”
Well, there it is. Ryan, as we’ve already discussed, is a fraud, and his budget is a bad joke, to the point that some in his own party are already bailing. At this point, anyone who votes for it is either a fool, or hopelessly cynical about the proper way to govern a nation. Not sure which category to put Brown in.
