Ryan endorsement rather predictable

Letter to the Editor

Last week, Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., endorsed Mitt Romney for president. The endorsement came as no surprise, as both politicians support the same agenda that would help millionaires and billionaires at the expense of the middle class.

Both Romney and Ryan’s budget plans would end Medicare as we know it, turning it into a voucher program to pay for massive tax cuts for the wealthiest few and tax breaks for the largest oil and gas corporations.

Romney and Ryan would return us to the same failed economic policies that brought us to the brink of disaster. Granite Staters can’t afford the Romney-Ryan agenda.

President Barack Obama knows that Medicare is an essential program that must be kept strong for today’s seniors and future generations. That’s why the health care law protects and strengthens Medicare.

A vote for Obama would ensure that Medicare would remain a viable program.
