By Roger Stone Rep Paul Ryan's medicare proposal is a stone-cold loser for the GOP. Ryan's proposal is the right thing to do but can't survive the voter wrath which could blow Republican's out of the majority in the House. Accusing the Democrats of "doing nothing" is an ineffective counter-attack since that is, in fact what the voters want - the status quo and they don't care about the costs - "Is my check coming next week?" Stone's rule: "Politics is always in the now."
