New Republicans: Tearing Down America

I'm short on time for a blog today, so I'll leave you with this must-read editorial from the New York Times: The New Republican Landscape:
"Six months after voters sent Republicans in large numbers to Congress and many statehouses, it is possible to see the full landscape of destruction that their policies would cause ... [Mr. Ryan's] bill would end the guarantee provided by Medicare and Medicaid to the elderly and the poor ... [the elderly] would be cut adrift ... cut food stamps ... increase hunger among the poor. ... And it would do all that while preserving the Bush tax cuts for the rich, and even expanding them."
Read the whole article. It's scary.
