AFP Responds to Paul Ryan VP Pick
ARLINGTON, VA – Today Americans for Prosperity, the nation’s largest and most effective advocate for economic freedom, responded to the announcement of Congressman Paul Ryan as Mitt Romney’s running mate. AFP President Tim Phillips made the following statement:
“The announcement this morning of Paul Ryan as Governor Romney’s choice for Vice President is great news for several reasons. First, it demonstrates the national conversation will be focused on substantive economic issues, and free market solutions to the problems we face. Second, it demonstrates a willingness to address our fiscal woes with bold solutions, rather than more empty promises and campaign rhetoric.
“Paul Ryan has been a regular participant in AFP rallies and events over the years. Our organization supported his 2010 budget plan and we have been proud to work with him on restoring economic freedom to our nation.
“Over the coming weeks, we look forward to a spirited, substantive debate on how to reverse the damage done by President Obama’s big-government policies, and set a new course for American prosperity.”
