The Path to Prosperity (Episode 2): Saving Medicare, Visualized

Paul Ryan explains medicare reform.

Added: Ben suggested I add Paul Ryan's contact information so that we can hound him into running for president. Here is his contact page. Help us, Paul Ryan; you're our only hope.

In addition: Commenter "Vic" linked to a Jonah Goldberg article at NRO where he discusses the GOP field. Jonah had had this to say about Congressman Ryan:

So the question many are asking is, should Ryan ride to the rescue? If the election is going to be a referendum on his plan, maybe the one guy who can sell it should do just that. On Monday, House majority leader Eric Cantor called for Ryan to get in the race, saying, “Paul’s about real leadership.” Charles Krauthammer on Fox News’s Special Report said he wouldn’t just urge Ryan to run, he’d form a “posse.”

If Ryan ran, he would probably drive the other candidates farther away from his own plan while forcing them to come up with serious alternatives of their own. Many think that if he got the nomination, he would clean Obama’s clock in the debates.

It’s a lot to ask. He has three young kids and would have to get organized and funded from a cold start for a long-shot run. But politics is about moments, and this one is calling him. Unless someone suddenly rises to the challenge, the cries of “Help us, Paul Ryan, you’re our only hope!” will only get louder.

History isn't just knocking; it's beating down the door.
