Happy Birthday to Rose Marie, 89.
Straight to the good stuff:
1. I entirely completely totally agree with Kevin Drum here. But of course you knew that, I suppose.
2. Paul Ryan: More popular than John Thune! And other Veepstakes loser data, from John Sides.
3. Sarah Kliff explains exactly where those ACA (and Ryan budget) ACA cuts come from. Oh -- in case you're wondering why it's now $716B instead of the $500B you may remember, it's because the budget window has moved forward.
