Australia: Romney choses fiscal conservative Ryan

The Sydney Morning Herald

Romney names fiscal conservative Ryan as Republican running mate

Nick O'Malley

Paul Ryan, the 42-year-old Wisconsin congressman with close tea party ties and a reputation for wanting to slash taxes and shrink government has been named Mitt Romney’s running mate and will become the next Vice President should the presumed Republican candidate win the election in November.

The selection of Mr Ryan, the chair of the powerful House Budget Committee, will focus attention on the significantly different paths the two parties would pursue to try to reinvigorate America’s sluggish economy.
