Paul Ryan's views on social medicine

I saw this over at Conservative Outpost, and it was quite interesting to me.

I think that Paul Ryan is on to something here.  Many conservatives use arguments involving Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security to point out what is wrong with Obamacare, and, in particular, the ways in which the cost estimates for the system are likely lower than the realistic costs of the program.

Why, then, when these conservatives were in office, were all three of these programs continued (and sometimes even expanded)?  If Obamacare is truly evil, guess what, so are these other government-run healthcare programs.  When we take back Congress this fall, prove to the public that you're not all a bunch of right-wing Christian nut jobs, and save us some money.  Privatize medicine and elder care, for good, and for real!
