Ryan, who is in his seventh term in Congress, represents Wisconsin's First Congressional District in the southeastern corner of the state. He is chairman of the House Budget Committee and serves on the House Ways and Means Committee.

In January 2010, Ryan gained attention nationwide after unveiling his “Roadmap for America’s Future.”

Romney formally made the announcement on a tour of the U.S.S. Wisconsin in Norfolk, VA. In the announcement, he said Ryan is the "intellectual leader of the Republican Party."

What about the lying Obama Campaign? Lied about Romney being responsible for that lady's cancer! They should be ashamed of themselves. Implying that Romney has not paid his taxes for 10 yrs? Without any proof! I want to know when Obama stopped beating his wife!

The pro-Obama ad about the woman dying of cancer was not APPROVED by Obama. Meanwhile, Romney came out and approved a message claiming Obama dropped the work requirement for welfare recipients... Blatantly false, but Romney wants Obama to come clean...Who is the dirty one here?..Put up or shut up indeed...Remember the birth certificate debacle?..Obama showed his certificate...When are we going to see Romney's tax returns?..FOUR MORE YEARS FOR OBAMA...ENOUGH PRO-RICH IDEOLOGY!..People have suffered enough already...Let Barack get us out of this muck the Republicans got us into...Let Paul Ryan carry Biden's bucket of water.

It appears that Ryan's budget proposals don't jibe with Romney's who now says that he has his own plan...Say What?..Was this a dart board pick then?..Or is Romney aware that, with his buddy's proposal, he (Romney) would be paying lower or no taxes in the end, because, you see, rich men get richer on their stock market earnings which are taxed at a much lower rate than the rest of us...Incidentally, Ryan's budget plan cuts spending on welfare and other entitlements while slashing taxes for the rich...Heaven help us.
