Paul Ryan Quotes

Paul Ryan #Attitude

What matters to me is that I do what I think is right and I see, I'm a numbers guy, that's my attitude. I know we have a debt tsunami coming, we are bankrupting this country and I'm in a position where I can actually advance ideas to prevent that from happening. That's exactly what I should be doing.
Paul Ryan #Society

That's what the Romney plan is all about, how to get jobs created, how to get this debt and deficit under control, how to revive small businesses so we can create jobs, and how to bring growth and opportunity to society instead of this class warfare, instead of speaking to people like they're stuck in some class or station in life.
Paul Ryan #Best #Government #Society

Activist government overreach and ongoing economic stagnation have shown us why Washington should not try to displace what is best left to civil society.
Paul Ryan #Business #Dad #Mom #Morning

Mom was 50 when my Dad died. She got on a bus every weekday for years, and rode 40 miles each morning to Madison. She earned a new degree and learned new skills to start her small business. It wasn't just a new livelihood. It was a new life.
Paul Ryan #Change #Leadership

So here's the question: Without a change in leadership, why would the next four years be any different from the last four years?
Paul Ryan #Age

We're saying no changes for Medicare for people above the age of 55. And in order to keep the promise to current seniors who've already retired and organized their lives around this program, you have to reform it for the next generation.
Paul Ryan #Freedom

That's what we do in this country. That's the American Dream. That's freedom, and I'll take it any day over the supervision and sanctimony of the central planners.
Paul Ryan #God #Government #Nature

Our founders got it right when they wrote in the Declaration of Independence that our rights come from nature and nature's God, not from government.
Paul Ryan #Government

Do we believe that the goal of government is to promote equal opportunity for all Americans to make the most of their lives? Or, do we now believe that government's role is to equalize the results of peoples lives?
Paul Ryan #Government #Happiness

We believe, as our founders did, that 'the pursuit of happiness' depends upon individual liberty and individual liberty requires limited government.
Paul Ryan #Government

Since taking office, President Obama has signed into law spending increases of nearly 25 percent for domestic government agencies - an 84 percent increase when you include the failed stimulus. All of this new government spending was sold as 'investment.'
Paul Ryan #Government

We believe that the government has an important role to create the conditions that promote entrepreneurship, upward mobility, and individual responsibility.
Paul Ryan #Government

The belief that recipients of government aid are better off the more we spend on them is remarkably persistent. No matter how many times this central tenet of liberalism gets debunked, like Brett Favre, it just keeps coming back.
Paul Ryan #Government #Wisdom

Conventional wisdom on government's role in inequality often has it backwards. Tax reforms have resulted in a more progressive federal income tax government transfer payments have become less progressive.
Paul Ryan #Government

In a clean break from the Obama years, and frankly from the years before this president, we will keep federal spending at 20 percent of GDP, or less. That is enough. The choice is whether to put hard limits on economic growth, or hard limits on the size of government, and we choose to limit government.
Paul Ryan #Health

We must solve the problem in health care by curbing out-of-control costs that erode paychecks for working families and push quality coverage out of reach for millions of Americans.
Paul Ryan #Health

The president has declared that the debate over government-controlled health care is over. That will come as news to the millions of Americans who will elect Mitt Romney so we can repeal Obamacare.
Paul Ryan #History

We wonder if we will be the first generation in American history to leave our children with fewer opportunities and a less prosperous nation than the one we inherited.
Paul Ryan #Change #Fear #Hope

Exploiting people's emotions of fear, envy and anxiety is not hope, it's not change, it's partisanship. We don't need partisanship. We don't need demagoguery, we need solutions.
Paul Ryan #Leadership

What's missing is leadership in the White House. And the story that Barack Obama does tell, forever shifting blame to the last administration, is getting old. The man assumed office almost four years ago - isn't it about time he assumed responsibility?
Paul Ryan #Leadership

What we heard today was not fiscal leadership from our Commander-in-Chief, what we heard today was a political broadside from our Campaigner-in-Chief.
Paul Ryan #Leadership #Politics

We need leadership. We don't need a doubling down on the failed politics of the past.
Paul Ryan #Money

If borrowing and spending all this money led to more jobs than we would be at full employment already.
Paul Ryan #Money

That's the real secret to job creation - not borrowing and spending more money in Washington.
Paul Ryan #Money

We need to stop spending money we don't have.
