Statement of AFSCME Pres. Lee Saunders following Romney’s selection of Paul Ryan as his running mate

Washington, DC —

“For years Mitt Romney has outsourced American jobs and stashed his wealth in offshore tax havens. Throughout his presidential campaign, he has pandered to extremists within his party who put the interests of the ultra-rich before those of the middle class. Now he has chosen Paul Ryan, who proudly proposes forcing millions of seniors into poverty by ending Medicare as we know it, as his running mate. The distinctions between Obama-Biden and Romney-Ryan couldn’t be any clearer. President Obama and Vice President Biden are fighting for everyone to have a fair shot at the American Dream. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are plotting a nightmare for middle-class families.”
