Paul Ryan’s speech at Heritage has been much celebrated. It seems impossible that the American idea, which so many of us take for granted, would be under threat as never before. The old Chinese proverb says “May you live in interesting times.” We certainly do.
We are extremely lucky to have Paul Ryan as the Chairman of the House Budget Committee. He’s not only very good at math, good at explaining, but he understands how government works, and is willing to stand up for what he believes in. Many were hoping he would run for president, but he knows that at this moment in time he is most valuable where he can make a difference on our behalf. We should all drop him a note to let him know how much we appreciate his efforts. He gets plenty of venom from the other side.
