VP pick Ryan to visit Warren today

Published: Thu, August 16, 2012 @ 6:00 a.m.



By David Skolnick



U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, the newly selected vice-presidential running mate of Republican Mitt Romney, will be in Warren today.

Ryan, a seven-term congressman from Wisconsin, will make a brief stop today at an undisclosed location in Trumbull County’s most-populated city to talk to voters, according to Romney’s campaign.

The visit to Warren will come after Ryan’s rally at Walsh University in North Canton. That event is supposed to start about 10 a.m.

Romney announced Saturday that he selected Ryan, chairman of the House Budget Committee, to be his vice-presidential running mate.

Ryan is expected to spend a lot of time campaigning in Ohio, one of the key battleground states in the presidential race.

Ryan made his first visit to Ohio as Romney’s running mate Wednesday. Ryan spoke at a rally at his alma mater, Miami University in Oxford.

Romney, as well as President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, the Democratic ticket seeking re-election, have made several campaign visits to Ohio.

They’ve all campaigned one time each in the Mahoning Valley this year, though Romney’s visit was the day before the state’s March 5 primary, which he narrowly won. Romney fended off a challenge in the primary from former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum, who’s since dropped out of the race and is supporting Romney.

"You'll want to be careful he doesn't steal your Social Security checks while he's here."

O'Bama and the Dems have been doing that for years and now O'Bama's stealing 700 Billion form Medicare to pay for O'BamaCareⓒ.

You need to keep up.

Ryan wants to fix a system that is going to go broke in 20 years.

Ryan wanted to privatize social security back when Bush was in the White House. It would have proven to be DISASTEROUS. The market crashed during the recession at the end of Bush's second term.

"The market crashed during the recession at the end of Bush's second term."
No wonder, in the last 2 years of the Bush adm, the 110th Congress was controlled by Pelosi & Reid.

Name one spending bill the Democrats pushed through in those two years. I'll help you out, the answer is zero. bush had veto power and used it. The economy crashing was on him and the republicans.

Couldn't answer sooner. I was listening to our Bucs getting clobbered by the Titans.

Now isn't that hilarious, that 110th, was the pits. Terrible - ugly, and of course it was all Bush's fault.
How do you account for the 103-104&105 Congress, all Repub, under Clinton. I suppose that was terrible. Those Congresses help to make Clinton.

By the way Cambridge, since you asked, on July 30, 2008, The Housing & Economic Recovery Act was passed.

It authorized the FHA to guarantee up to 300B in new 30 yr fixed rate mortgages for SUBPRIME borrowers.

I guess you know what happened after that.

Please don't bother me for the 2nd half.

and since bush had veto power and didn't use it is exactly what he wanted or he would have used his power to veto it. That's how it works.

This article is from the NY Times Sept 30, 1999. Your favorite newspaper, Cambridge.

I'll skip the quotation marks.

Fannie Mae, the nations biggest underwriter of home mortgage, has been under increasing pressure, from the Clinton Adm. to expand mortgage loans among low & moderate income people & felt pressure from stockholders to maintain its phenomenal growth in profits.

Fannie Mae has expanded home ownership for millions of families in the 1990's by reducing down payment requirements, said Franklin D. Raines, Fannie Mae's chairman & chief executive officer. Yet there remains too many borrowers whose credit is a notch below what our underwrining has required who have been relegated to paying significantly higher mortgage rates in the so-called subprime market.

In moving, even tenatively, into this new area of lending, Fannie Mae is taking on significantly more risk, which may not pose any difficulties during flush times. But the Govt-subsidized corp may run into trouble in an economic downturn, prompting a Govt rescue similar to that of the savings & loan industry in the 1980's.
So, there you have it.

So in the eight years after Clinton, when bush had six years of a republican congress and two years of veto power they were so busy undoing Clinton's balanced budget and formula for paying off the debt that they didn't have time undo all the bad things he did and that caused the economic collapse TEN years later. Is that what you're saying?

Clinton's balanced budget occured, Clinton the moderate, worked hand in hand wih the Rebubs that accounted for balanced budgets.

Evidently you forgot about the Dot Com Bubble that occured in 2000. Remember when Pets.com went broke, Amazon went from 107 to 7 & Cisco Systems dropped by 86%. Yeah, Bush inherited it. Then 9-11 occured and billions were spent on keeping America safe.

Come on Cambridge, put your thinking cap on.
