House Majority PAC Statement on Paul Ryan as Romney’s VP Pick

August 11, 2012

Washington, D.C. – House Majority PAC Executive Director Alixandria Lapp today released the following statement on Mitt Romney’s announcement of Paul Ryan as his vice presidential pick.

“Paul Ryan is the architect of the Romney-Ryan plan that not only ends Medicare but also dramatically increases the deficit by giving the wealthy and big corporations huge tax breaks. The political liability that is the Romney-Ryan plan was on full display in upstate New York last year when Democrat Kathy Hochul won a Congressional seat in a Republican district and House Majority PAC made it clear we would fight back aggressively against such an extreme plan.

“With Congressman Ryan on the ticket, every House Republican and candidate nationwide will have to explain their support for the radical Romney-Ryan budget that hits seniors, families and the middle class in the pocketbook, while lavishing tax breaks on the big corporations and the wealthiest among us.”

The ad that House Majority PAC ran in last year’s special election in upstate New York here:

Narrator: Jane Corwin.
Corwin: “We can’t keep piling on debt for future generations.”
Narrator: But the budget Corwin supports actually increases the national debt by $8 trillion over ten years while Corwin’s plan would essentially end Medicare, it increases the debt by giving tax breaks to Big Oil and millionaires. Seniors sacrifice, the wealthy gain, our debt skyrockets. Jane Corwin: that’s not a plan, that’s a sham.”
