Biden and Ryan on the Budget

Biden and Ryan on the Budget

Vice President Joe Biden and Congressman Paul Ryan sparred during the first and only debate for the vice presidential candidates, Federal News Radio reports.  The debate was not only a contrast in substance, but in style: Biden was feisty and on the attack, while Ryan was steady and came armed with a number of policy facts and figures.

On the budget, Ryan said that leaders run to problems to fix problems.  President Obama, Ryan added, had not even put out a credible plan for dealing with the budget.  “We’ve got to tackle this debt crisis before it tackles us,” Ryan stated, calling Mitt Romney “uniquely qualified” to fix the debt crisis.

Biden argued that the Ryan plan would put people off of Medicare and make college unaffordable for young people, and said that the plan did nothing “except continue to increase the tax cuts for the very wealthy”.

It is clear that the two candidates have two very different philosophies when it comes to solving our national debt problem.  Whoever is elected must do something.  One may disagree with Paul Ryan on the issues, but he is absolutely right when he says that we must tackle this debt crisis.  We do not have a choice.
