Ryan vs. Obama, cont.

"[T]he latest version of Ryan’s Path to Prosperity, released today, does far more than defeat a rival who’s decided to forfeit the field," AEI expert Jim Pethokoukis writes. "It presents a bold and sweeping solution to America’s twin problems: too much debt and too little economic growth."
Pethokoukis continues by contrasting Ryan's budget with Obama's:
And he helpfully provides this graph:
As the boss said last night: "The good news: Ryan’s budget is even bolder and more specific than last year’s. It’s also better than last year’s, especially because of a couple of tweaks on Medicare reform. In addition, it preserves a reasonable level of defense spending by reforming entitlements, rather than gutting defense, as Obama does, in order to put off tough choices on entitlements. In sum, it’s the document of a serious governing party, and provides a strong and clear contrast to Obama. I expect the Republican presidential candidates (basically) to endorse it, run on it, and govern according to it."
