The Ryan budget provides a view of Republican priorities and their vision for how to increase economic growth, reform entitlements, and balance the budget. While timid and imperfect, Ryan’s plan shows that Republicans are at least looking in the right direction.

Sigh. Even when they’re sort of doing the right thing, Republicans are incapable of using the right argument.
