Statement by SEIU President Mary Kay Henry on Mitt Romney’s Vice President Running Mate Choice of Rep. Paul Ryan

SEIU’s Henry: “Romney has shown  the American people that he believes Rep. Ryan’s extremist, irresponsible and anti-worker agenda is what’s right for our country.”

Washington, D.C.–(ENEWSPF)–August 11, 2012.  “If there were ever any doubt that Mitt Romney is not on the side of working people, today’s choice of Rep. Paul Ryan as a running mate makes it crystal clear.  With this choice, Romney has shown the American people that he believes Rep. Ryan’s extremist, irresponsible and anti-worker agenda is what’s right for our country.

“Rep. Ryan has made a name for himself by fighting in the halls of Congress for tax giveaways for the wealthy and big corporations while proposing to gut vital services like Medicare and education, and eliminating any sense of retirement security for working families.  His no-holds barred record of attacking seniors, children, and working men and women is frightening for the 99 percent of Americans who are not rich — but for Mitt Romney it was a calling card to choose him as a running mate.”
