The Atlantic refuting the “economic proof” that Ryan’s plan works. (I’m not sure what to think about the fact that I’ve had pleasant conversations with both economists mentioned). I like the way that this article points out that just because an economist says, “under these assumptions the plan works” doesn’t even mean the economist thinks the plan works (or if he does, that other economists will agree with the assumptions)! But politicians will take whatever they can get and twist it. Too bad we don’t use adjectives, because then we could say “heroic assumptions.”
