'No, this isn’t a column about whatshisname, the guy on Twitter, who’s getting plenty of attention. It’s about Paul Ryan & his awful dishonest plan! Everything we’ve seen from Ryan amidst the health care debacle is consistent with his previous career. He’s still the same guy I wrote about back in 2010: “The Flimflam Man;” all of Ryan's proposals share a family resemblance: each involved savage cuts in benefits for the poor and working class, with the money released by these cuts used to offset large tax cuts for the rich. All were, however, sold on false pretenses as plans for deficit reduction. Now, however, the flimflam has hit a wall. He used to game the Congressional Budget Office, so it produced reports that looked to the unwary like proper scores of his plans. This The C.B.O. told the devastating truth about his plan, and his evasions and lies were too obvious to ignore.'
