Peter, Paul and Barry: A Contrast in Economic Policy Visions

Interesting column about Paul Ryan and the Republicans.
“Over the past week, the White House began trying something new: changing the subject from their own proposals to those of Congressional Republicans. This is a marked departure from the past several months, during which the White House alleged repeatedly – and wrongly – that Republicans were obstructing necessary legislation with no alternatives of their own. But now, the White House has decided it is time to acknowledge that Republicans have been offering ideas – and to attack them.”
Understandable, the democrats’ plans don’t do anything to promote freedom or prosperity, and rather than talk about their own horrible, constricting, unfounded policies, they’ve decided to attack those with real ideas.
“The contest between the Ryan and Orszag visions for Social Security is the fundamental contest between constraining our spending appetites and raising taxes to fuel persistently higher costs.”
Perfect quote. Code words for Conservative vs. Liberal. People vs. Bureaucracy. Freedom vs. Constraint.
