Paul Krugman: "A Public Service Reminder: Paul Ryan is a Con Man"

Paul Krugman warns that con artist Paul Ryan is trying to move back into his previous disguise as "Washington’s favorite Serious, Honest Conservative:"

What he actually offered was a plan to hurt the poor and reward the rich, actually increasing the deficit along the way, plus magic asterisks that supposedly reduced the debt by means unspecified.
