Digby suggests that by allowing Ryan to bring his budget to the fore and then voting on it the Republicans may have gone beyond what the public will take.

Doing so after their frontal assault on the Democrats in the last election with "death panels" and "pulling the plug on grandma" means that they actually ended up giving the Democrats the benefit of the corporate bought and paid for propaganda, which is unusual.
Heh. For once I got ahead of her:
It's official. The Republican Party's members of the House have a death wish. How else can one explain their vote (235 to 193, all Democrats and only four Republicans in the No column) to destroy Medicare and Medicaid as part of the Ryan 2012 budget plan?
