Health Care Reform and Costs (II)

Ezra Klein and Paul Ryan squared off in a phone conversation, which Klein posted on his blog. Interesting debate, wonky and worth reading. It ends on a rather depressing note, however:

EK: Last question. On the question of whether we can trust Congress to implement modest cuts. If you don't think government can abide by even the modest spending cuts in this bill, then where are we left? We're going to need to do much more than this bill. Your bill does much more than this bill. But if Congress can't do what it says it's going to do, what's the point in talking about any of this at all? If none of the policies can be implemented, then we're going bankrupt.
PR: I can't disagree with what you just said.
