Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), the Ranking Member of the House Budget Committee, knows Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) well. The two are often paired against each other in media interviews, debating budget issues in a calm and respectful manner. So it is somewhat surprising, and disappointing, to see that Van Hollen attempt to pre-empt Ryan's new budget, which balances within ten years, by accusing it of hurting "middle class, seniors, veterans, women, children, federal employees, low-income families, and those nearing retirement."
That is a response worthy of the demagoguery of President Barack Obama, not a serious budget analyst.
