Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) today praised Governor Mitt Romney's choice of Congressman Paul Ryan (R-WI) as his running mate.
"I congratulate Governor Mitt Romney for making a superb selection in picking my colleague Paul Ryan as his nominee for Vice President.
Paul had the courage and political guts to put forth a plan that saves Medicare and Social Security. Paul knows the ins and outs of fiscal policies and in the Halls of Congress he is known as a budget expert who knows what steps to take so we won't bankrupt our great nation.
Paul will work with the private sector to help create jobs and spur economic growth and he will be a friend of America's hard working families.
On the issue close to the Cuban American community, Paul is with us on being firm against the Castro dictatorship.
I ask the South Florida community to hear Paul's plans to get our nation back on a sound economic footing and not believe the scare tactics from liberals who will bankrupt future generations.
The Romney-Ryan ticket will save us from being a future Greece, from having a lost decade as in Japan and from having an unemployment record like Spain. I am honored to support them and I look forward to campaigning alongside them to assure a better future and a stronger America."
