Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. (NJ-06) on Selection of Paul Ryan as Romney V.P. Running Mate


Location: Long Branch, NJ

Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. (NJ-06) released the following statement regarding Governor Mitt Romney's selection of Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan as his vice presidential running mate:

"By selecting Congressman Paul Ryan as his vice presidential running mate, Governor Romney has sent a potent message to seniors and all Americans that he supports the dismantling of Medicare and an economic plan that puts millionaires above the Middle Class.

"For months, Democrats in Congress have fought against the Ryan Budget because we are entirely committed to maintaining the Medicare guarantee and making sure that seniors continue to have access to affordable health care. The Ryan plan ends the Medicare guarantee as we know it and turns it into a voucher system, eliminating benefits for millions of Americans. The Romney-Ryan Budget hurts Americans, inhibits economic growth and will set our nation back decades.

"Today's news makes the GOP agenda clear: priority #1 is to eliminate Medicare and ALWAYS put the interests of millionaires over the needs of the Middle Class. Democrats have a different view and remain committed to putting the Middle Class first and we will continue to fight every day for seniors and keeping the Medicare guarantee."
