Republican-led legislatures across the nation are making controversial changes to many laws under the guise of "choice." Charter schools give families a "choice" of where to send their children. Right to work gives workers a "choice" to join a union. The truth is, "choice" is a red herring in these political discussions.
Paul Ryan has come up with his latest Republican budget proposal, and it changes nothing. It neither promotes economic growth nor reduces the budget deficit, as with past proposals. That's because its real target is to win some Senate seats by targeting Obamacare, for starters. And it can't do that without telling some whoppers.
