Paul Ryan and Chris Wallace on Fox News
WALLACE: Are you saying that as part of your budget you would repeal — you assume the repeal of Obamacare?
WALLACE: Well that’s not going to happen.
RYAN: Well, we believe it should. [...]
WALLACE: This was a big issue in the campaign between Romney-Ryan vs. Obama-Biden. They think they won and they think that’s one of the reasons they won, and there are, Congressman, a lot of independent studies that say if you put this into effect, the net effect will be that seniors will end up having to pay more of the share of their healthcare cost. [...]
RYAN: I would argue against your premise that we lost this issue in the campaign. We won the senior vote.
Chairman Ryan coming out saying one of the marquee issues in the budget is going to be the repeal of Obamacare. I think we fought that battle. I think it’s over and it’s been over for some time. Good luck with that one - that doesn't make it anymore realistic.

Paul Ryan, the Health Bomber
. . . My question is why the newspapers keep acting as if this guy, Paul Ryan, is some kind of big Republican brain. Is this the person with whom the President needs to strike some type of Grand Bargain? If so, we've got problems.
~ Chris Matthews on Hardball
Paul Ryan comes out as if 2012 didn't happen, it's like Back to the Future. He got in a time machine!

Ryan: “the most important question isn’t how we balance the budget. It’s why.” If how doesn’t matter, why not raise taxes?
