House GOP Running From Toxic Ryan Plan

I can’t understand why the House GOP isn’t interested in doing more with a plan that effectively kills Medicare:

The chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee said Thursday he has no interest in bringing up House Republicans’ proposal to replace Medicare with subsidies for private insurance if it’s not going to pass the Senate.

“I’m not really interested in laying down more markers,” said Rep. Dave Camp (R-Mich.). “I’d rather have the committee working with the Senate and with the president to focus on savings and reforms that can be signed into law.”

In the coming year, Dems would be wise to inform the voters about their strong opposition to the Ryan attack on Medicare and their opponents entertaining it in Congress.
