The GOP's Future?

Paul Ryan, who was basically the only Republican who came off sounding like he knew what the hell he was talking about during the Q&A/bitch-slapping Obama gave the House Pubs, actually put out an alternate budget proposal. It's got some good ideas, some good but painful ideas, and some painfully bad ideas, but at least it's an attempt at a conversation.

Here's the test though: as Matt Yglesias points out, Ryan's Medicare voucher proposal is a non-starter unless the insurance industry gets overhauled -- which is already part of the health care reform proposal sitting in front of the House right now.

So... will Ryan now support that bill, or at least consider supporting it as a necessary step towards his own budget ideas?
