It really is an important part of the political theater some of you have been watching today. There were no governors or state representatives in that room. Not one. Many Democrats and Washington bureaucrats like the power, and are unwilling to give it up.
The video – courtesy the Republican Study Committee with a hat tip to Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit – tells the story. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) asks the question. Do we distrust our governors? Do we distrust our state legislatures? All solutions do not come from within the beltway my friends. And those solutions that do frequently leave us at status quo or worse with a lot less money available to future generations, and a lot more problems.
Allah at Hot Air has more on the Ryan performance.
