Regardless of whether or not u like Paul Ryan. This could've been a democratic party stunt to continue to garner support for the tried & true "conservatives want to throw old people off cliffs" narrative.
I think most of can agree on, and support the notion that government entitlements are a major problem with respect to the nation's fiscal health. And this is one area we can potentially work with the other republicans on...
The truth is if Ron Paul were in Mitt Romney's or Paul Ryan's position right now liberals would be using the very same arguments against him too. Although, instead of "Ron Paul wants to throw old people off cliffs" it would be "Ron Paul wants to throw the whole country into anarchy." Which, of course, is completely false.
