Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.), the architect of the House GOP’s plan for cutting spending, Romney made a campaign issue out of one of the government’s biggest programs, Medicare. Sure enough, the attacks on Ryan’s proposal to transform Medicare from insurance into premium subsidies began within minutes after Romney announced Ryan as his running mate.
