Hazleton, PA – Today, Lou Barletta issued the following statement regarding the selection of Paul Ryan to complete the Republican presidential ticket:
“Jobs and the economy are the number one concern of voters across America. Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney understand the need for pro-growth strategies that will get our economy back on the right track.
“A Romney-Ryan ticket offers a clear contrast to the failed policies of President Obama that have only made our economy worse. The team of Governor Mitt Romney and Representative Paul Ryan has the expertise to offer idea after idea on how to fix our economy, cut Washington’s red tape, right-size federal spending to deal with our deficit, and save important federal programs that so many rely on.
“Having worked with Paul Ryan, I can say no one in the House of Representatives knows the federal budget better than he does. He will be an invaluable resource to the ticket and the American people as their next Vice-President. At a time when our country is heading for a fiscal cliff, there could not be a better team for the future of America than Gov. Mitt Romney and Rep. Paul Ryan.”
Old Forge, PA – “Today, Mitt Romney announced Paul Ryan as his running mate. Ryan is a talented and experienced fiscal conservative who understands the challenges facing our country. His selection confirms that the Mitt Romney is committed to turning America around,” said Laureen Cummings, Republican candidate for Congress in Pennsylvania’s 17th District.
“The ‘R & R’ team promises America some badly needed “r&r” from the irresponsible, job killing policies of the Obama Administration. Paul Ryan is the right choice at the right time and I commend Mitt Romney on his selection.”
Mooslyvania- Congratulations to Mitt Romney on his choice of Congressman Paul Ryan as his running mate. President Obama has declared that this election is about “two fundamentally different visions” for America. Goodness, he’s got that right. Our country cannot afford four more years of Barack Obama’s fundamentally flawed vision. We must now look to this new team, the Romney/Ryan ticket, to provide an alternate vision of an America that is fiscally responsible, strong, and prosperous – an America that understands and is proud of her exceptional place in the world and will respect those who fight to secure that exceptionalism, which includes keeping our promises to our veterans.
