Leadership needed

August 24, 2012
The Mining Journal

To the Journal editor:

I live in a county that U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., represents. I have been to over a dozen of his town hall meetings.

I have seen gyms and auditoriums filled with apprehensive seniors listen to Ryan as he addresses where America was, is now, and where it's headed. When he concludes he always gets a standing ovation.

He tells us how his plans don't change anything for those 55 and older, and how those 54 and younger will still have a safety net. Medicare is going broke and Ryan has opposed a budget for America.

We need bold leaders that are willing to address the problems we face. Ryan is a man of answers and solutions. This country has a spending problem but Democrats have not come up with a serious budget in over three years.

Ask them where's their budget, where's their plan to fix Medicare and they will answer: We don't have one. We just don't like Ryan's.

It's time to put in leaders that will not kick the can down the road. That's why we need to make a change this November, before it is too late.
