Romney and Ryan…
According to Congressman Paul Ryan (R-WI), he and Governor Romney spent time together last Thursday (Oct. 27) when Romney was in Washington D.C. They discussed entitlement reform and our federal debt.
Speaking Tuesday, Mr. Ryan said the meeting was focused on issues pertaining to Social Security reform and the nation’s growing debt crisis.
“I spent an hour with Romney on Thursday,” Mr. Ryan said. The Wisconsin Republican said the two discussed about entitlements reform and Republican proposals aimed to limiting costs associated with Social Security programs.
“I think he gets the situation, and I think he’s serious about fixing it if elected.” …
John McCormack from The Weekly Standard asked Ryan about his meeting with The Gov, pointing out that Ryan had previously been somewhat critical of Romneycare:
[Ryan] says the issue is irrelevant. “I don’t think this question matters that much anymore because Romney’s been very clear that he’s against Obamacare and he’s going to repeal it. So I for a second don’t worry about whether he’s going to shy away from repealing the president’s health care law.”
Ryan also said this about Romney:
“He keeps winning these debate tests. He’s pretty capable and strong and resilient in those things.”
Congressman Ryan is the ranking Republican on the House Budget Committee. The Republican National Committee has delegated him to fundraising for the eventual nominee, so he won’t be endorsing anyone during the primary.
Last week, the day before he met with Romney, Congressman Ryan spoke to a gathering at The Heritage Foundation:
