that’s rich, ryan

House Speaker John Boehner, House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Rep. Jeb Hensarling and Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers outside the White House after their meeting with President Barack Obama regarding the debt ceiling.

According to GOPolitico, Paul Ryan told the President that he has been incorrectly describing the Republican congressman’s Medicare plan as a voucher system.

 Ryan told reporters outside the White House that he “simply explained what our plan is” to Obama during a meeting in the East Room with the House GOP.

 “It’s been misdescribed by the president and others,” Ryan said. He added that he wanted to clarify his position with Obama “so that in the future, he won’t mischaracterize it.”

Ryan sure knows all about mischaracterizing stuff, eh?
