I've worked closely with -- Republicans as well as Democrats to advance an agenda of economic growth fiscal discipline and job creation.
I'm proud to stand with a man who understands what it takes to Foster job creation in our economy.
Someone who knows from experience.
That if you had a small business you did build that.
But -- -- -- as governor Mitt Romney announce his running mate and Republicans are already rallying around congressman Paul Ryan they say in a house budget -- reinforces the campaign's message that big government is ruining America so what does -- Tea Party think of governor around respect Tea Party express chair Amy Cramer joins us from the great state of Wisconsin.
-- so what's -- acted like this choice or not.
I do like -- -- I think it's a great choice I think it's a risky choice but.
You know to gain anything in life you have to risk something and then with a big risk comes a big gain.
But I think America's ready for we need somebody -- will want to step up to the plate and make these old.
Top hard decisions that need to be made.
And Paul Ryan is -- -- to do that and I think what this shows is eight it's gonna give the grassroots a little bit more confidence in the Romney campaign.
And Romney team that he is serious about buckling down.
And getting down to business.
Amy -- I'm curious what you think.
I know the button that -- -- budget is but congressman Paul Ryan voted yes for the auto bailout he voted yes for TARP.
Yes for the prescription drug bill -- and President Bush 43 any voted yes to.
Stimulus in 08 he did vote -- to present Obama stimulus in 09.
But all those other things he voted yes does that in any way have an impact on your thinking because that is not survey what I think it was a typical.
Tea Party set of votes.
Well -- we're -- different climate now and I think there are many votes have been that have been casting converse that people wish they could take back.
Part of the reason this whole movement is here is because of those votes that were cast.
But he has shown that he's ready to get down to business he's willing to -- take on the entitlements.
And we all know that our -- our budget cannot be balanced just dealing with discretionary spending.
And nobody is willing to step up to the plate and do that because they're all afraid they're gonna lose their reelection.
But Paul Ryan understands that we have to deal -- those entitlement programs Medicare sat.
Released that report last year the board of trustees that said if Medicare was not reform by 20/20 four it would be bankrupt.
Well here we are we continue to kick the can down the road and you have heard -- -- campaign and the administration say and that Medicare as we know what's gonna end under Paul Ryan.
Well Medicare as we know what ended it with the passage of obamacare when they reallocate its 700 billion dollars to cover the the Medicaid.
So Medicare as we know it has ended.
And the thing about Paul Ryan is that the numbers don't why you can't -- the numbers you can't politicized the numbers it's not going to be easy.
But I think Americans want to know the truth they know that things -- not better than they were four years ago and we have to make some serious changes.
And a one quick question I'd would you like -- -- governor Sarah -- speaking at the Republican Convention or is that not an issue for him.
I absolutely would I mean I've said -- time and time again that.
There's no one that excites the base and energizes the base -- the Governor Palin does she has a lot of supporters across this country.
And I think that the party and the Romney campaign need this grassroots movement more and that -- we need them it's gonna take all of us.
