PAUL RYAN for "VEEP!"
REPUBLICAN VICE PRESIDENT CHOICE; BETTER BIO;
(All NewtonStein "INSPIRED-INERRANT" Bible View!)
CHRISTIPEDIA: PAUL RYAN: REPUBLICAN VICE PRESIDENT CHOICE; BETTER BIO;
Republican Presidential Nominee Willard "MITT" Romney - MORMON - chose Paul Davis Ryan -ROMAN CATHOLIC - to be his running mate for 2012
Paul Ryan is quite young at age 42, being born January 29, 1970.
Paul Ryan is the U.S. Representative for Wisconsin's First Congressional District, serving since 1999, and has served as the preeminent Republican Fiscal-Budget specialist for several years. 
Since the 2010 Republican TEA-PARTY landslide putting 130 Tea-Party backed person in the US congress, Paul Ryan has served as Chairman of the House Budget Committee.
As Chairman, Paul Ryan has focused on fiscal policy and has proposed to increase the funding and strength of the important Social Security program . . .
. . . to keep it from going bankrupt as Baby-Boomers SWITCH from putting money INTO the Social Security Fund to drawing money OUT of the Fund as Baby-Boomers Retire . . . at a rate of 10,000 A DAY AVERAGE . . . and will do so for over two decades . . .
. . . putting FAR MORE AMERICANS on Social Security and leaving FAR FEWER AMERICANS actually working and putting money into the Social Security Trust Fund.
>> What political Demagogues refuse to tell voters, is that Social Security is headed for BANKRUPTCY As fast the the clock turns!
>> Politicians also fail to inform Seniors, that RETIREES, already on Social Security is ALREADY SCHEDULED for a FULL 30% cut . . . and nothing needs voted on to make this happen.
>> It is already set, and if Paul Ryan's plan - or something similar isn't installed to SAVE SOCIAL SECURITY . . . it will surely CRASH . . . leaving scores of millions of aged Americans with MUCH LESS THAN THEY HAVE NOW!
**FACT! We are NOT endorsing Ryan's Plan Social Security Plan, or saying that it is the best idea.
**FACT! We are saying that if something isn't done, the Social Security will ease to exist very, very soon!
Ryan also has a SURE-FIRE plan to STOP THE FRAUD in Medicare, as currently - THOUSANDS of doctors do false billing for THOUSANDS of MILLIONS of dollars to the DIRECTLY to the GOVERNMENT for TREATMENT that Senior Citizens NEVER GOT.
Ryan's plan RE-DIRECTS the billing THROUGH the Senior Citizens:
>> So Seniors get the Doctor Bill FIRST . . . confirming there are NO CHARGES for treatment not received . . .
>> Then direct it on to the government.
>> This would SAVE $$Billions in fraud, that COULD BE SPENT on Senior Citizens WHERE IT BELONGS . . .
>> This money would also be used to help provide for the 10,000 Baby-Boomers retiring every day!!!
THESE TWO PROGRAMS ABOVE DEFINE PAUL RYAN!
If you grasp THESE TWO TERRIFIC FINANCIAL DISASTERS WAITING TO HAPPEN . . . you understand the MAJOR PURPOSES of Paul Ryan's work in recent years in Congress.
**FACT! We are NOT endorsing EITHER of Ryan's Plans - Social Security or Medicare - or saying these are the best ideas.
**FACT! We are saying that if something isn't done, the Social Security and Medicare (AND MEDICAID!) will ease to exist very, very soon!
The good factor about Paul Ryan is that he will TRY to bring these issues into Public Focus so AL AMERICANS - especially Senior Citizens - so they see that SOMETHING MUST BE DONE SOON!
Ryan's plans may not be the best solutions at all . . . but they are a talking point for President Obama, Harry R., Nancy P. and John B., and all of the Capitol Hill gang to discuss and work out!
Paul Ryan, Background:
Born and raised in Janesville, Wisconsin, Ryan earned a B.A. degree from Miami University in Ohio. Following his studies, he worked as an aide to United States Senator Bob Kasten of Wisconsin, as legislative director for Senator Sam Brownback of Kansas, and as a speechwriter for former U.S. Representative and 1996 Republican vice presidential nominee Jack Kemp of New York.
In 1998, Ryan won election to the United States House of Representatives, succeeding the two-term incumbent, fellow Republican Mark Neumann. He is now in his seventh term.
Ryan, as chair of the House Budget Committee, has played a prominent role in the Republican Party's budget proposals. As an alternative to the 2012 budget proposal of President Barack Obama, Ryan introduced a plan, The Path to Prosperity, in April 2011 which included significant changes to Medicare.
He then helped introduce the similar The Path to Prosperity: A Blueprint for American Renewal in March 2012, in response to Obama's 2013 budget. Ryan is one of the three co-founders of the Young Guns Program, an electoral recruitment and campaign effort by House Republicans.
On August 11, 2012, Ryan was chosen by Mitt Romney to be his vice presidential running mate.
Early life and education
Ryan was born and raised in Janesville, Wisconsin, the youngest child of Elizabeth A. "Betty" (née Hutter) and Paul Murray Ryan, a lawyer. He is of Irish and German ancestry, and is a fourth-generation Wisconsin native. His great-grandfather, Patrick William Ryan (1858–1917), founded the Ryan Incorporated Central construction business in 1884.
Ryan's grandfather was appointed U.S. Attorney for Western Wisconsin by then-President Calvin Coolidge.
Growing up, Ryan and his family often went on hiking and skiing trips in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Since Ryan shares his first name with his father and to avoid confusion while growing up he went by the nickname, "P.D." (Paul Davis) but it was often mistaken for 'Petey' making Ryan dislike it.
Aged 16, Ryan found his father lying in bed dead. According to Ryan, his father, grandfather and great-grandfather all died from heart attacks at ages 55, 57 and 59 respectively,inspiring his later interest in health and exercise.
After his father's death, Ryan's grandmother, who suffered from Alzheimer's disease, moved in with his family and he helped care for her. His father’s death provided Ryan with Social Security benefits until his 18th birthday, which he used to pay for his education at Miami University of Ohio.
As a junior at Joseph A. Craig High School in Janesville, Ryan was elected class president, which made him prom king and gave him his first political position, a seat on the school board.
He ran track his sophomore and senior years, was on his high school's varsity soccer team and played basketball in a Catholic league. He was also a member of the the student council, the Latin club, the history club, the letterman's club, the outdoors club, the International Geographic Society, the pep club, the ushers club and the Model U.N.
Ryan went on to attend Miami University in OHIO where he often visited the office of professor Rich Hart to discuss the ideas of economists such as Milton Friedman and Friedrich Hayek, and the writings of Ayn Rand.
He also studied at the Washington Semester program at American University where he played pick-up basketball games with NBC journalist, David Gregory. He worked summers as a salesman for Oscar Mayer.
During his junior year at Miami University, Ryan worked as an intern in the D.C. offices of Senator Bob Kasten of Wisconsin.
While a student, Ryan also did volunteer work for the congressional campaign of John Boehner, now Speaker of the HOuse of Representatives from Cincinnati, OHIO.
Ryan was a member of the Delta Tau Delta social fraternity. Ryan graduated from Miami University as a double major with a B.A. in economics and political science in 1992.
Early political career
Betty Ryan reportedly nudged her son to accept a congressional position as a staff economist attached to Kasten's office, which he did after graduating in 1992. In his early years working on Capitol Hill in D.C., Ryan supplemented his income by working as a fitness trainer and at other various side jobs.
After Kasten was defeated by Democrat Russ Feingold in 1992, Ryan became a speechwriter for Empower America, a conservative advocacy group founded by Jeane Kirkpatrick and William Bennett.
Ryan later worked as a speechwriter for Jack Kemp, the Republican vice presidential candidate in the 1996 United States presidential election, and later worked for US Senator Sam Brownback of Kansas.
PRIVATE ENTERPRISE EXPERIENCE:
In 1997 Ryan returned to Wisconsin and worked for his family's business, the Ryan Incorporated Central construction company, as a marketing consultant for a year.
In 1998, he ran for Congress.
Disciple of AYN RAND:
At an Atlas Society meeting celebrating Ayn Rand's life in 2005, Ryan said that
"The reason I got involved in public service, by and large, if I had to credit one thinker, one person, it would be Ayn Rand",
and "I grew up reading Ayn Rand and it taught me quite a bit about:
>> who I am and
>> what my value systems are, and
>> what my beliefs are.
It's inspired me so much that it's required reading in my office for all my interns and my staff."
In response to criticism from Catholic leaders over his budget and Medicare proposals, in 2012 Ryan distanced himself from Rand's Objectivist philosophy.
U.S. House of Representatives
Ryan has sided with a majority of his party in 93% of House votes in which he has participated, and sided with the majority vote of all House votes 95% of the time with the 111th Congress.
Ryan was first elected to the House in 1998, when two-term incumbent Mark Neumann retired from his seat in order to make a bid (unsuccessful) for the U.S. Senate. Ryan won the Republican primary over 29-year-old pianist Michael J. Logan of Twin Lakes and the general election against Democratic opponent Lydia Spottswood.
Ryan successfully defended his seat against Democratic challenger Jeffrey C. Thomas in 2000, 2002, 2004, and 2006. In 2002, Ryan had also faced Libertarian candidate George Meyers. Ryan defeated Democratic nominee Marge Krupp in the 2008 general election in his district.
Ryan defeated Democratic nominee John Heckenlively and the Libertarian nominee Joseph Kexel in the 2010 general election in his district.
Ryan had planned to face Rob Zerban (D) and Keith Deschler (L) in the 2012 Congressional elections. The primary contest is scheduled for August 14; Ryan is the only candidate seeking the Republican Party nomination.
Under Wisconsin law, Ryan is allowed to run concurrently for Vice-President as he competes for his eighth term in Congress.
Ryan has over $5.4 million in his Congressional campaign account, more than any other House member. He has not yet announced if he will withdraw from the Congressional race.
Following his first election to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1998, he had a walk-in delivery van converted into a “Mobile Constituent Service Center” that allowed him and his staff to meet with his constituents at rural locations across Wisconsin's 1st congressional district.
In 1999, Ryan voted in favor of the Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act which repealed key provisions of the depression-era Glass–Steagall Act which regulated banking.
In 2002, he voted in favor of the Iraq Resolution, authorizing President George W. Bush to use military force in Iraq.
In 2003, Ryan voted in favor of the Medicare Part D prescription drug law.
In 2004 and 2005, Ryan pushed the Bush administration to propose the privatization of Social Security; Ryan's proposal ultimately failed when it did not gain the support of the then-Republican presidential administration.
After the next election, he was chosen as the ranking member of the House Budget Committee.
T.A.R.P. Supporter of WALL STREET BAILOUTS:
In 2008, Ryan voted for the Troubled Asset Relief Program, the Wall Street bailout that precipitated the Tea Party movement, and the bailout of GM and Chrysler.
In 2011, he was selected to deliver the Republican response to the State of the Union address. In 2012, he accused the nation's top military leaders of using "smoke and mirrors" to remain under budget limits passed by Congress.
Ryan later said that he misspoke on the issue and called General Martin Dempsey to apologize for his comments.
In May 2012, Ryan voted for H.R. 4310 which would increase spending on defense, the Afghanistan War and various weapon systems to the level of $642 billion – $8 billion more than previous spending levels.
First Budget (2008): The Path to Prosperity
Ryan speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, D.C. on February 10, 2011.
On May 21, 2008, Ryan introduced H.R. 6110, The Path to Prosperity: Roadmap for America's Future Act of 2008, commonly referred to as The Ryan Budget.
This proposed legislation outlined changes to entitlement spending, including a controversial proposal to replace Medicare with a voucher program for seniors. The Roadmap found only eight sponsors and did not move past committee.
On April 1, 2009, Ryan introduced his alternative to the 2010 United States federal budget. This alternative budget would have eliminated the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, lowered the top tax rate to 25%, introduced an 8.5% value-added consumption tax, and imposed a five-year spending freeze on all discretionary spending.
It would also have phased out Medicare's traditional fee-for-service model, instead offering fixed sums in the form of a vouchers for Medicare beneficiaries to buy private insurance with, starting in 2021. The federal government would no longer pay for Medicare benefits for persons born after 1958.
The plan attracted criticism since the voucher payments would not be set to increase as medical costs increase, leaving beneficiaries partially uninsured.
Ryan's proposed budget would also have allowed taxpayers to opt out of the federal income taxation system with itemized deductions, and instead pay a flat 10 percent of adjusted gross income up to $100,000 and 25 percent on any remaining income. Ryan's proposed budget was criticized by opponents for the lack of concrete numbers.
It was ultimately rejected in the House by a vote of 293–137, with 38 Republicans in opposition.
On January 27, 2010, Ryan released a modified version of his Roadmap, H.R. 4529: Roadmap for America’s Future Act of 2010. The modified plan would: give across-the-board tax cuts by reducing income tax rates; eliminate income taxes on capital gains, dividends, and interest; and abolish the corporate income tax, estate tax, and Alternative Minimum Tax.
The plan would privatize a portion of Social Security, eliminate the tax exclusion for employer-sponsored health insurance, and privatize Medicare.
On April 11, 2011, Ryan introduced H.Con.Res. 34, a federal budget for the fiscal year 2012. The House passed this, the Ryan Plan on April 15, 2011, by a vote of 235–193. Four Republicans joined all House Democrats in voting against it. A month later, the bill died in the Senate by a vote of 57–40, with five Republicans and most Democrats in opposition.
Citing the Tax Policy Center, economist and New York Times columnist, and oft-times far-out-of-touch Paul Krugman criticized Ryan's contention that his plan would reduce the deficit, saying that this contention is due to the "effects of his proposed spending cuts — period. It didn’t address the revenue losses from his tax cuts."
According to the Tax Policy Center, Super-Socialist Krugman said, Ryan's plan "would raise taxes for 95 percent of the population" and produce a $4 trillion revenue loss over 10 years from tax cuts for the rich.
Krugman called the proposed spending cuts a "sham" because they depended on making a severe cut in domestic discretionary spending without specifying the programs to be cut, and on "dismantling Medicare as we know it," which is politically unrealistic.
Most asked Krugman what he had been smokin'!
In response to Krugman, columnist a top economic authority, writing in the National Review, argued that Ryan's plan would lead to less debt than current budgets.
Additionally, economist Ted Gayer wrote that "Ryan’s vision of broad-based tax reform, which essentially would shift us toward a consumption tax... makes a useful contribution to this debate".
Second Budget (2012)

On March 23, 2012 Ryan introduced a new version of his federal budget for the fiscal year 2013. On March 29, 2012, the House of Representatives passed the resolution along partisan lines, 228 yeas to 191 nays; ten Republicans voted against bill, along with all the House Democrats.
Ryan's budget seeks to reduce all discretionary spending in the budget from 12.5% of GDP in 2011 to 3.75% of GDP in 2050. This goal was criticized as unrealistic in part since it includes spending on defense, which has never fallen below 3% of GDP.
Former US Comptroller General David Walker and Maya MacGuineas, president of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, both praised the budget for making tough choices. Walker believes it needs to go even further, tackling social security and defense spending.
Congressman Justin Amash, a Republican from Michigan criticized Ryan's budget, writing that the cuts weren’t deep enough, particularly in the area of military spending and foreign aid.
Marc Goldwein, the policy director for the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget also argued that a balanced budget may not be achievable. The 2012 Ryan budget was criticized by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops as taking away benefits from the poor contrary to church teachings  but Ryan rejected their criticism.

2012 vice presidential campaign
The USS Wisconsin in Norfolk, Virginia, where Romney announced his Vice Presidential selection.
On August 10, 2012, it was announced that presumptive Republican
Presidential nominee Mitt Romney would be announcing his choice for Vice Presidential running-mate in Norfolk, Virginia, with most news sources reporting that Ryan would be his running-mate.
Former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty, Florida Senator Marco Rubio, and Ohio Senator Rob Portman were told that they would not be picked, according to GOP sources. On August 11, shortly after 7 a.m., the Romney campaign officially announced Ryan as its choice for Vice President through its mobile app titled "Mitt's VP", as well as the social networking service Twitter, about 90 minutes before Romney's in-person introduction.
Before the official announcement in Norfolk, it was reported that Romney had decided to choose Ryan on August 1, 2012, the day after returning from his foreign trip through the United Kingdom, Poland and Israel. On August 11, 2012, Ryan formally accepted Romney's invitation to join his campaign as his running mate, in front of the USS Wisconsin in Norfolk, Virginia.
Ryan married Janna Little, a tax attorney, in December 2000. She was living in Arlington, Virginia, when Ryan met her and is a cousin of Democratic U.S. Representative from Oklahoma Dan Boren. An Oklahoma native, she is a graduate of Wellesley College and George Washington University Law School.
The outdoors-loving Ryan proposed to her at a favorite fishing spot, Big St. Germain Lake in northern Wisconsin. The Ryans live in Janesville, Wisconsin, with their three children Elizabeth Anne, Charles Wilson, and Samuel Lowery. Ryan is a fan of the Green Bay Packers.
He is also Roman Catholic and is a member of St. John Vianney Catholic Church.
Ryan, a fitness enthusiast, promotes fitness as a daily routine for young people. Ryan, whose father, grandfather and great-grandfather all died of heart attacks in their 50s, has said he is careful about what he eats, performs an intense cross-training routine known as P90X most mornings, and has made close to 40 climbs of Colorado's Fourteeners (14,000-foot peaks).
Ryan is a hunter and fisherman who makes his own bratwurst and Polish sausage. He is also a bowhunter and a member of his town's archery association, the Janesville Bowmen. His musical preferences include Beethoven, Rage Against the Machine and Led Zeppelin.
