Republicans Suddenly Have Plans

Washington Post: "In the past few days alone, three senior GOP senators unveiled an alternative to Obama's health-care law that offers a conservative vision for covering the uninsured, House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) summoned experts to a Capitol Hill hearing to discuss new ways to help the poor, and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) proposed making childless adults eligible for a lucrative tax credit currently available only to working families."

"The challenge for Republicans is convincing voters that their newfound concern is sincere. After three years of budget cuts and fiscal crises that badly damaged the GOP brand, voters not only rejected presidential nominee Mitt Romney in 2012 but also have told pollsters that they view Republicans generally as indifferent to middle-class interests."
