Paul Ryan's 2012 budget plan, which would reshape Medicare, Medicaid, and the tax system in order to bring down the national debt over the next decade, was passed in the House on a mostly party-line vote today. Four Republicans and every single Democrat voted against the plan, and it has zero chance of getting through the Democrat-led Senate. [Politico]
