When Paul Ryan sits down to debate Joe Biden this week, he'll have some explaining to do. Why does his budget go after so many programs that have helped to grow and strengthen the middle class, including his own family?

Raised in Janesville, Wisconsin, I'll Be Voting to Protect the Middle Class -- I'll Be Voting for Obama/Biden

Like Paul Ryan, my beliefs are "rooted in Janesville, Wisconsin." But what I can't understand is why some middle-class folks -- and their supporters -- might think Romney and Ryan have their best interests at heart.

Why Romney and Ryan's Lies Matter

Romney Takes His Political Inspiration From Europe's Worst Mistakes

William K. Black | Posted 10.15.2012 | Business
William K. Black

One of Governor Romney's criticisms of President Obama is that he "takes his political inspiration from Europe..." Romney never gives specifics on this criticism. But the irony is that Romney (and Representative Ryan) "takes his political inspiration from Europe" and that the European policies they embrace have already proven disastrous there. Europe has some excellent and some terrible economic policies. Romney and Ryan have shown an unerring talent for embracing Europe's worst financial policies and denigrating its best policies. What is amazing is that no matter how badly the European policies fail, Romney and Ryan ignore those failures and promise to drag us down the path to inevitable failure as well.
