An interesting debate occurred yesterday at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) featuring congressman Paul Ryan and New York Times columnist David Brooks. Prior to viewing this video, I highly recommend reading the Ryan-Arthur Brooks (no relation to David Brooks) 9/13/2010 Wall Street Journal essay entitled “The Size of Government and the Choice This Fall”, and David Brooks’ response to the Ryan/Arthur Brooks essay entitled “The Day After Tomorrow”, as these essays provide context for the debate.
