Ryan chosen to give rebuttal to State of the Union

Paul Ryan

As perhaps additional evidence of his rising star on the national scene, U.S. Rep Paul Ryan has been chosen to deliver the Republican rebuttal to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address Tuesday.

Ryan’s district includes all of Kenosha County.

In a press release issued today, Speaker of the House John Boehner said:

Paul Ryan is uniquely qualified to address the state of our economy and the fiscal challenges that face our country. We’re broke, and decisive action is needed to help our economy get back to creating jobs and end the spending binge in Washington that threatens our children’s future. I’m pleased that Paul will be outlining a common-sense vision for moving our country forward.”

In the same release, Ryan said:

“Delivering an address to the nation is a unique opportunity, and I am grateful to my party’s leaders for entrusting me with this responsibility,” said Ryan. “I am hopeful that the President will work with the new House Majority to cut spending, reform government, and restore the foundations for growth and job creation. More than rhetoric, we need results. I look forward to outlining a vision for a future that fulfills the uniquely American legacy of leaving the next generation with a stronger, more prosperous nation.”
