Bush On Ryan’s Roadmap: ‘You Don’t Get Steak — Ever’

Views

Former Florida governor and brother to Dubya Jeb Bush has a way with words.

He spoke to the New York Times for a story today on Rep. Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) “Roadmap” budget plan, which calls for, among other things, dismantling Social Security and Medicare.From the Times:

“He’s not saying the world’s going to be full of butterscotch sundaes,” is how Jeb Bush described the plan to me recently. “He’s saying: ‘Eat your broccoli. And then maybe you don’t get to eat at all for a few days. You don’t get steak — ever.’ ”

It’s difficult to get any Republicans to go on the record about Ryan’s plan — which is, as the Times puts it, “a little too bleak for the campaign trail” — even though Ryan is the ranking member of the House budget committee and the party’s de facto budget guy.
