Jon Huntsman is promoting it. The moderate Republican (and former Obama administration ambassador to China) reportedly plans to make it an important issue in his presidential campaign. (h/t, The Paul Ryan Watch).
Republican politicians with career ambitions have been wanting to distance themselves from Ryan's plan for almost a month now. Although Newt Gingrich was punished for telling the truth prematurely, even some Tea Party officials are now reading the writing on the wall.
Huntsman has just handed them a face-saving way to throw Paul Ryan under the bus. The former ambassador is the Dick Leinenkugel in this race, a moderate Republican who served in a Democratic administration. He will be painted as a RINO and run out by the week after the New Hampshire primary, and Ryan's plan will be buried with his political career.
