FIRST LOOK – Paul Ryan speech at 11:30 a.m. to the Family Research Council’s Values Voter Summit in D.C.: “In the president’s telling, government is a big, benevolent presence – gently guiding our steps at every turn. In reality, when government enters the picture, private institutions are so often brushed aside with suspicion or even contempt. This is what happened to the Catholic Church and Catholic Charities this past January, when the new mandates of Obamacare started coming. Never mind your own conscience, they were basically told.

THE JUICE – Harry “Reid talks tough, ramps up for 2016,” by Manu Raju, with Burgess Everett: “In an interview from his Senate office last week, the 73-year-old majority leader insisted he’s running for reelection in 2016. He’s ramping up his campaign organization, and he’s getting ready for the onslaught the GOP is preparing to send his way.
