Paul Ryan: bold, risky pick for Romney VP

In choosing Rep. Paul Ryan as his running mate, Mitt #Romney has gone bold – and risky.

Congressman #Ryan of Wisconsin is more than just the young, articulate chairman of the House Budget Committee. He is the author of a controversial budget proposal that would reduce taxes, cut government spending, and limit the growth of entitlements. Most controversially, he would turn Medicare, the government’s health-insurance program for seniors, into a voucher-like system, and Medicaid, health care for the poor, into block grants to the states.
