Via OTB, this statement from Boehner as he tries to worm away from his vote to end Medicare (screw you Politifact):
“I voted for it. I’m for it. It’s our idea,” Boehner said. But then he added: “It’s Paul’s idea. Other people have other ideas. I’m not wedded to one single idea, but I think it’s — we have a plan. Where’s the president’s plan to deal with the nightmare that’s facing Americans?”
In other news, Harry sees minority status in his future and is acting sensibly for once:
The plan, recently approved by the House, has virtually no chance of passing the Democratic-led Senate. The vote would serve to put Senate Republicans on the record in favor of slashing taxes on the rich while replacing Medicare with a voucher program.
“There will be an opportunity in the Senate to vote on the Ryan budget to see if Republican senators like the Ryan budget as much as the House did,” Reid told reporters on a conference call. “Without going into the Ryan budget we will see how much the Republicans like it here in the Senate.”
Make them own it.
