re: #80 Targetpractice, Worst of Both Worlds

I’d argue it’s because, by this point, all their “solutions” have been tried and failed spectacularly. The Ryan Plan is basically everything they’ve tried over the past 4 decades, crammed into one unsavory package and sold as a “cure-all.”

That’s part of it there’s also things like Romney’s Healthcare plan that became the model for national healthcare reform. Once Obama adopted it conservatives opposed it. Also TARP was a necessary program started under Bush to save the economy from certain ruin. Only When Obama continued to idea did Republicans oppose it. They have/had workable solutions but abandoned them when the Dems adopted them to help the country.
