Ryan As VP Pick is a Message to Middle Class

The choice of Rep. Paul Ryan as a vice presidential running mate is consistent with a GOP policy that leaves the middle class behind. The Idaho Democratic Party released the following statement:

“Idaho has a state GOP leadership that is experimenting with giving tax cuts to the wealthiest citizens while letting public schools and other infrastructure go without maintenance or improvement,” said Sally Boynton Brown, Executive Director of the Idaho Democratic Party. “Rep. Paul Ryan would offer these same kinds of policies that leave the middle class behind and hurt the chances for small businesses to expand and provide meaningful careers for our children, here in Idaho. Ryan as a VP choice is particularly troubling because his proposals threaten Medicare and Social Security for seniors who have earned the security of dignified retirement. Anyone who doubts how hostile this choice of running mate is to average citizens need only look at the details of the proposed Ryan budget.”
