Ryan toasts Medicare cuts with $350 bottles of wine

Talking Points Memo:

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), a leading advocate of shrinking entitlement spending and the architect of the plan to privatize Medicare, spent Wednesday evening sipping $350 wine with two like-minded conservative economists at the swanky Capitol Hill eatery Bistro Bis.

Anybody recognize these two economists? They ordered two bottles at $350 a pop, probably while complaining about the cost of your Grandma's Medicare.

  1. Ryan might laugh this off. "Let them drink grape soda!" He'd say. And then the bourgeois masses ideally would respond: "Off with his head!" A fellow can dream, can't he?
