Increasing the defense budget by 483 Billion over ten years while simultaneously privatizing Medicare for those 55 and under will be DOA.   Good luck selling that to the voters.  If Ryan is serious about cutting the deficit, He needs to gash defense spending as well.   Voters can understand slashing all spending.  They will be quite amiss at being on the receiving end of spending cuts while the military industrial complex continues to feast at the feeding trough.

If the voters cannot be adult enough to realize that (a) national defense is one of the few things that only government is supposed to be doing, and (b) health care is not something the government should be meddling in, then they deserve the hellhole of a country they'll be leaving to their children and grandchildren.
