Milbank vs. Ryan

by Ramesh Ponnuru

The best thing that can be said about Dana Milbank’s take on the Ryan plan is that at least he hasn’t attempted another humor column.

“President Obama’s budget was irresponsible, failing to take on entitlements and relying on rosy assumptions. But Ryan’s budget is equally irresponsible. He punts on Social Security and proffers silly forecasts of his own. . .” Equally irresponsible? Are the projected budget numbers from the CBO the same, then? Does Ryan’s punting prevent the plan from stabilizing and then paying off the debt? Does anyone reading this post expect Milbank to have attempted to answer any of these questions?
