Something I'll Bet You Didn't Know About Paul Ryan
Here's the Ohio Democratic Party's email about Mitt Romney's stellar VP pick!
Today, we’ll learn a lot of things about Mitt Romney’s Vice-Presidential nominee, Paul Ryan.
But one story you likely won’t hear is about Ryan’s start in politics, as a young staffer just out of college, working for then-Congressman John Kasich’s Budget Committee. Ryan cut his teeth working long, tireless hours for Kasich, helping him slash programs for working families, grinding progress to a halt, and laying the groundwork to shut down the federal government.
Kasich made a big mark on Ryan, which became entirely clear last year when Congressman Paul Ryan followed in the footsteps of his mentor, proposing a radical, ideological budget that would end Medicare as we know it. These men are truly cut from the same cloth.
Romney as president would be bad enough. But Ryan as Vice-President would be catastrophic. He would pound a sharp stake into the heart of Medicare, and we can’t let that happen.
This election truly will decide who we will be as a country and the stakes have never been sharper. I hope you'll join me as we move America forward.
Thanks for standing with us,
