    simply ignores that the Affordable Care Act uses bipartisan measures -- most of its main provisions, including the individual mandate, were originally Republican proposals -- to address the looming crisis in entitlement programs.

    There's nothing radical at all about "Obamacare."  In fact, it's a fundamentally centrist approach to the problem.  The Ryan plan, on the other hand, is the functional equivalent of bomb-throwing extremism.

    False equivalence, indeed.
