Noted right-wing organization says Ryan gets support

That bastion of right-wing whackery, ThinkProgress, says that, despite what some are saying, Rep. Paul Ryan’s deficit-reduction plan has received “overwhelming support” at most town hall meetings.

While it is true Ryan did find overwhelming support at most of his meetings — receiving at least two standing ovations and several requests that he run for president — the Congressman was also routinely challenged by his constituents on his plan to lower tax cuts for the rich and transform Medicare into a “premium support” system in which seniors received a pre-determined sum of dollars to purchase health coverage from private insurers.

There was a slap in that graf, of course, but still, I admire ThinkProgress for telling the truth about Ryan’s reception. I hoist a glass of iced tea in their direction.
