A Paul Ryan Profile in the New Yorker -- Jared Bernstein

An excellent analysis by Jared Bernstein – also very timely! 

“It’s actually not hard to write down plans that purport to quantify Ayn Randian visions.  You cut deeply here and there—always from 30,000 feet up so you don’t have to get into fights about specifics—you turn big programs over to the states (e.g., you “block grant” foods stamps and Medicaid), you privatize social insurance, you voucherize Medicare with vouchers whose costs lag prices.”
