A truly bipartisan deal?
In the recent editorial debate on budget politics, Rep. Paul Ryan in his opposing view states: “Republicans’ Path to Prosperity budget that passed the House last week represents the only plan that . . . advances bipartisan, patient-centered health care solutions” (“Compromise budget is flawed,” April 4).
How does it advance bipartisanship when he calls it a Republican plan? How is it bipartisan when it was passed on a party-line vote? Have I missed something?
Were the views of Democrats in the House taken into consideration? If so, which ones? Only then can Ryan claim that his plan advances a bipartisan solution.
