Lou Barletta’s statement on the selection of Paul Ryan as Mitt Romney’s running mateAugust 11th
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.”
