Re: I wouldn't trust it...

Ryan's a Republican front runner for the 2016 Presidential election.  He's simply moderating his position for the general electorate to appear as more of a centrist.  He's smart enough to know he can't get elected to the POTUS running as far to the right as Romney did.

Why is he saying it to the public and not to his colleagues? Why isn't he campaigning and lobbying against the current Republican extortion attempt. Sounds to me he is just speaking to his voters after all he isn't VP yet.

"This isn't a grand bargain. For that, we need a complete rethinking of government's approach to helping the most vulnerable, and a complete rethinking of government's approach to health care. But right now, we need to find common ground. We need to open the federal government. We need to pay our bills today—and make sure we can pay our bills tomorrow. So let's negotiate an agreement to make modest reforms to entitlement programs and the tax code."

Incredible! Another Republican that gets it! And his party's nominee for VP no less!
