    You missed the creating the poll.

    At any rate, I'm going with "no change." It will help Obama with people who've decided that anything's good for him. It will help Republicans with those who will give the GOP credit for the sunrise.

    It depends on how both sides use it in the campaign. There are plenty of jewels within that proposal to basically let the Dems destroy the over 65 vote for the GOP. Furthermore the very un-adult take that only spending should be cut. IMO independents are independents because they'll take the time to educate themselves and do the math. And Ryan's propsal is basically fails the math test. There is absolutely no way we can bring down the debt within a reasonable period of time (Ryan still has us running deficits in 2030!) without increases to revenue.

    If Obama can release an ACTUAL MATURE proposal, the GOP will suffer. That said, Ryan's take is arguebly the first real adult proposal we've seen from the GOP.

    Assuming they use it properly, this will absolutely help democrats. All they need to do is advertise what is actually in the bill.

    Americans were actually voting for a mixed government that might produce some bipartisan results rather than partisan posturing, but thanks for proving my point.

    You mean all they have to do is absolutely distort and blow up portions of the bill.

    You realized you just called the Republican Majority House Leader and Minority Senate Leader "mentally deficient?"
