Let Them Squirm

Politico has an article up about how many Republican lawmakers are already squirming at the prospect of voting on Congressman Paul Ryan's budget proposals which would end Medicare as we know it, among other things.
I say: Let them squrim. This is yet another reason the President should be wary of being to conciliatory towards the GOP on the subject of deficit reduction. First, he should see if his opponents have the strength of their convictions. I am betting they don't.
