Mark Thompson calls Ezra Klein's interview with Rep. Paul Ryan the "best thing I’ve seen in the health care debate in months." A short quote from Ryan:

I feel obligated to put big ideas on the table and break up the status quo and this awful inertia we have out here. We shoot at anyone who pops their head above the foxhole and proposes anything big. This fiscal situation will destroy us if we don’t start stepping up. I don’t have all the answers. I put out a real, credible plan in the hopes that other members of Congress will do the same, and we can get on with the business of hashing out how to fix the problem.
