Of course, it's total bullshit.

Obamacare actually reduces the deficit and contains it innumerable measures designed to contain healthcare costs, and already has.
No, when you strip away the budgeting gimmicks, it adds to the deficit. And the cost containment measures are trivial and completely inadequate to address the problem.

As my good friend pat would say:



So let me get this straight:

Politically unfeasible budgetary solutions from Obama: unserious lip service.

Politically unfeasible budgetary solutions from Ryan: the very definition of a deficit hawk!
The Obama proposal, when it was made as a part of the budgets he sent to Congress, couldn't even get democrat votes. The Ryan plan at least passed the House. There's a pretty significant difference in seriousness between the two.
