Bruce Webb vs Paul Ryan

There’s a lot of talk lately about Republican Representative Paul Ryan and his intellectual chops, especially when it comes to the deficit and entitlement spending. Bruce Webb gives a serious look at Ryan’s “Roadmap for America’s Future” (something it seems almost no media outlets have bothered to do) and basically tears it to shreds. Webb concludes:

Ryan Roadmap: Cut taxes on the rich, increase taxes on the poor. Now that is tax simplification we can all believe in! (Not).

Webb’s deconstruction is so thorough, a parenthetical “not” at the end isn’t sufficiently ironic.
