Eat your broccoli and shut up

How Republicans consider the needs of ordinary people:

Republicans admire the boldness of Mr. [Paul] Ryan’s vision, even if his proposals are a little too bleak for the campaign trail. “He’s not saying the world’s going to be full of butterscotch sundaes,” is how Jeb Bush described the plan to me recently. “He’s saying: ‘Eat your broccoli. And then maybe you don’t get to eat at all for a few days. You don’t get steak — ever.’ ” [emphasis added]
More steak for them! More broccoli too.

Update (8/13): More bullshit purveyed by the big media straight from Ryan to you discerning palate.
