Paul Davis Ryan (born January 29, 1970) is an American politician, the United States Representative for Wisconsin’s 1st congressional district, and the presumptive nominee of the Republican Party for Vice President of the United States in the 2012 election.[1][2] Born and raised in Janesville, Wisconsin, Ryan is a graduate of Miami University in Ohio. He worked as an aide to legislators Bob Kasten, Sam Brownback, and Jack Kemp and as a speechwriter before winning election to the U.S. House in 1998 and is currently the chairman of the House Budget Committee.

Ryan has proposed replacing Medicare with a voucher program for those now under 55,[3] and turning Medicaid and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (Food Stamp Program) into block grants to the states.[4][5][6] Ryan introduced these in his spending plan for the House Budget Committee in April 2011 and in an updated version in March 2012.[7]

  3. Good Morning Anthony and thank you for re-posting this.


  4. I am really looking forward to the debates.
    All of the moderators to date are from liberal leaning networks.
    This will be an indication of how they treat Gov. Romney, and his ability to elevate the conversation to the subjects that matter to the American People.
    Romney should dismiss any diversion from the current problems the U.S.
    has endured under the Obama administration and instead use the Gingrich tactic of taking it back to the moderator.
    The moderator WILL get personal with Romney.
    The trivial, his history with Bain, as Governor, etc.

    I nominate Newt Gingrich for moderator, or Chris Christey.
    With a panel of small business owners, farmers, mechanics, coal miners, oil rig operators, and on and on.
    You know, real people.
    Now that would be a debate !

    If that was the format, Obama would never show up.


    • I too am looking forward to the debates. I hate that the Liberal Media has stacked the Moderators and are going to try and steer the course of the debate on Social Issues rather then the economy. I think Mitt is prepared for this and I hope he is able to steer the debate back to the real issues facing America.
