U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta, R-Hazleton, said Saturday Mitt Romney and his vice presidential running mate, U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., understand Americans are most concerned about jobs and the economy.
“A Romney-Ryan ticket offers a clear contrast to the failed policies of President Obama that have only made our economy worse,” Barletta said. “The team of Gov. Mitt Romney and Rep. Paul Ryan has the expertise to offer idea after idea on how to fix our economy, cut Washington’s red tape, right-size federal spending to deal with our deficit, and save important federal programs that so many rely on.
“Having worked with Paul Ryan, I can say no one in the House of Representatives knows the federal budget better than he does. He will be an invaluable resource to the ticket and the American people as their next vice president. At a time when our country is heading for a fiscal cliff, there could not be a better team for the future of America than Gov. Mitt Romney and Rep. Paul Ryan.”
