A question by Fox News Sunday’s Chris Wallace and the answer from Rep. Paul Ryan about his proposed budget for 2012:
Q: As you look ahead to the next election, aren’t Democrats going to be able to say . . . look at the House Republicans, they want to kill Medicare, they want to kill Medicaid, they want to gut the programs that you depend on. Aren’t you playing into Democrats’ hands?
A. We are. We are giving them a political weapon to go against us, but they will have to lie and demagogue to make that a political weapon.
