* Republican Rep. Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney's running mate, spoke in Oxford, Ohio, today. Here is what Paul Ryan had to say, according to APnews/Myway:
Facing what is emerging as a defining issue, Mitt Romney running mate Paul Ryan on Wednesday invited debate over his controversial proposal to overhaul Medicare and predicted the GOP would win the argument.

Really? Paul Ryan thinks that he and Romney will win this debate to throw out Medicare? Really? First, they have to get elected or the Republicans have to be able to have majorities in both the House and the Senate. Are Americans willing to gamble on losing Medicare? Are you willing to create a disaster for your parents and yourselves by voting for candidates that will destroy Medicare? Can you imagine the worries, emotional upset, anxiety, and mental anguish you and your family could face without Medicare? Do your parents have enough money to cover a critical medical issue?
Why would you vote for someone that would hurt your family? Why would you vote for Romney and Ryan knowing what they intend to do?
