But Democrats, sensing a political opportunity reminiscent of the 2005 Social Security fight that hurt the GOP in the polls, say they want to force a vote on the Ryan plan.
Looks like it already has 10 "Yay" votes, counting Ryan (R-WI).
The original co-sponsors are:
Rep. Roscoe Bartlett (R-MD)
Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) - She was just talking about her support for the idea on Fox.
Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX)
Rep. John Campbell (R-CA)
Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-TX) - He also spoke out in favor of the plan last week
Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA)
Rep. Tom Price (R-GA)
Rep. Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) - signed on Thursday
Rep. Sue Myrick (R-NC) - signed on Thursday
