Who was that smiling congenial man who gave the opposition party rebuttal to the State of the Union address by the president?
He’s the ranking member, Committee on the Budget. He has published a plan that is his notion of what is best for America during this time of financial crisis. You can find it online at the following website.
As for his post-SOTU rebuttal speech, I also noted the following as written in the Washington Post Business section:
Ryan managed to get through the speech without mentioning, or even alluding to, his Roadmap. Nor did the words “Medicare” or “Social Security” pass his lips. It was like watching Colonel Sanders give a speech that never mentioned chicken.
