Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) remains convinced that ending Medicare is the right policy solution, politics be damned. He's got the misguided assistance of Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR), an assist that's not likely to convince many comers from the other side of the aisle, or even less Randian Republicans in the House.
The Ryan-Wyden plan the House budget chairman is pushing has been roundly rejected by the White House and by House and Senate Democrats. It's a non-starter for them, made even more so by the fact that Mitt Romney has embraced it. Wyden's going to be in a Democratic wilderness on that one.
Yet, Ryan is undeterred.
