Ticket Information: VP Candidate Paul Ryan to Visit Waukesha Monday

There's still time to get tickets online or in person for Wisconsin congressman's early morning stop in Waukesha.

Tickets are available throughout the weekend for Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan's visit to Waukesha on Monday morning.

Ryan and other key Republicans will be at Carroll College for a town hall meeting at the Van Male Field House, 227 N. Barstow St. Doors open at 7 a.m., and the event is expected to begin around 8 a.m.

It's the Wisconsin congressman's second visit to Waukesha since Mitt Romney selected him as running mate in August. Thousands of people showed up at a rally at the Waukesha Expo Center the day after Ryan was picked for the second spot.

Tickets are available at the GOP campaign office at 1701 Pearl St. in Waukesha until 9 p.m. on Saturday, and from noon to 9 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are also available on Romney's campaign website.

Ryan's visit comes just days after his debate against Vice President Joe Biden and at a time when the polls show the race tightening in Wisconsin. The Huffington Post's Pollster feature, which averages the results of recent polls, shows President Barack Obama with a 3 percentage point lead over Romney in Wisconsin. Three weeks ago, Obama's lead was 7 percentage points.

Romney/ Ryan have exposed their colors. Color of austerity. Same one’s that promoted double dip recessions in Europe. Demanding for the middle class to make more sacrifices as the austere of their existence is suffered. All the while the elitist lavishly devour the fruits of the laborers’. Example of republican’s “Austerity” policies . Outsourcing! Add that lost revenue plus the $5 Trillion they want to cut in taxes, mostly from the top of the pyramid as the lower will receive the least amount of tax cuts. PLUS Romney‘s $2 Trillion for their war chest {Military Complex- guess who owns them?} How will that affect the 80% of us; as consumers evaporate and jobs disappear. Greece as one example of Austerity and their results. Cut jobs and cut consumers as the republicans seek. Manufacturing, domestic services and agriculture lose their laborers’/ consumers. Machines and agriculture fields lay idle. No consumers! Ryan’s budget would result in 4.1 million lost jobs in 2 years. Ryan’s budget calls for massive reductions in government spending. He has proposed cutting discretionary programs by about $120 billion over the next two years and mandatory programs by $284 billion, which, the Economic Policy Institute projected, would suck demand out of the economy and “reduce employment by 1.3 million jobs in fiscal 2013 and 2.8 million jobs in fiscal 2014, relative to current budget policies.” Guess they are going for the record for eliminating jobs.

Remember Ryan spewed these distorted myths. Ask him to clarify his stance on theses two myths he continuously goes about spewing. 1] “Medicare and Social Security are going bankrupt. These are indisputable facts.” [T]he possibility of Medicare going bankrupt is — and historically has been — greatly exaggerated. In fact, if no changes are made, Medicare would still be able to meet 88 percent of its obligations in 2085. Social Security is fully funded for another two decades and could pay 75 percent of its benefits thereafter. There is also an easy way to ensure the program’s long-term solvency without large changes or cuts to benefits. 2 “The vice president was in charge of overseeing this. $90 billion in green pork to campaign contributors and special interest groups.” Multiple reviews, including an independent review of all Department Of Energy loan programs by Herb Allison –- finance chair for McCain for President 2008 –- have found no “pork” in the stimulus’ funding of green projects, concluding that the loans were not steered to friends or family, as Ryan claims. http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2012/oct/05/mitt-romney/mitt-romney-says-barack-obama-provided-90-billion/ Pulitzer Awarded site. How can we have such callow leaders representing us?
James R Hoffa October 14, 2012 at 05:34 PM
@Bernie - You are consistent with your LIES and PROPAGANDA. Hoffa will give you that much! But nothing could be further from the truth! The reason you won't be honest about Romney's/Ryan's plan is because when you compare their actual plan against the Obama/Biden plan (or non-plan as it is), it becomes a no-brainer to most people in favor of Romney/Ryan. We all saw this with the HUGE swing in the polls and momentum favoring the Romney/Ryan ticket after the first debate, as it's the first time many were exposed to the real Romney/Ryan plan, as opposed to the liberal LIES about it. Outsourcing isn't in the Romney/Ryan plan - that is a LIE. The $5T in tax cuts would mostly favor the middle class, while the super wealthy wouldn't receive hardly any tax cut under the Romney/Ryan plan. As Ryan explained at the debate, Romney/Ryan don't want to increase military spending by $2T, they just want to undo the auto-cuts from the military budget that have already been scheduled by Congress and planned by the Obama administration to be implemented before the end of his term. And Ryan's budget doesn't actually cut that many government jobs - again, you are LYING. How will that effect 80% of us? Lower taxes on individuals = more money in our pockets to spend. Lower taxes on businesses = lower consumable goods/services costs. More spending and lower costs = increased demand for goods and services. Increased demand = more jobs and higher pay. Everyone wins!

Compare to how the Obama/Biden plan will effect 80% of us? Higher taxes on individuals = less money in our pockets to spend. Higher taxes on businesses = higher consumable goods/services costs. Less spending and higher costs = less demand for goods and services. Less demand = less jobs and lower pay. Everyone except for government loses. This is a no-brainer for anyone with a brain, unlike Bernie. ROMNEY/RYAN/THOMPSON 2012!!!
James R Hoffa October 14, 2012 at 05:53 PM
@Bernie - Again, you're LYING!!! 1) Both the Medicare and SS Trust Fund trustees have stated time and again that the programs, under their current funding and benefit payout schedules, will go bankrupt in the near future unless there is a population and jobs boom in this country in the next five years, and that doesn't appear very likely to happen, especially under a continued Obama administration, or the programs are significantly changed/reformed! And the only way to shore up the programs long term solvency without large changes or cuts to benefits is to significantly increase payroll (FICA and FUTA) taxes on people. More studies have indicated that to fully fund the program, the payroll taxes would need to be increased to nearly 20% of a person's gross pay. Eliminating the SS cap on high income earners would basically equate to wealth redistribution (socialism). Americans should be treated like adults - the programs should be reformed. 2) Solyndra doesn't ring any bells? And it is a FACT that one of the owners of Solyndra was a large Obama 2008 campaign donor/bundler that had personally visited Obama in the WH shortly before the loans were miraculously approved, despite Obama's own DOE stating in communications that it "wasn't ready for prime time." Just because a so-called 'independent review' cleared the administration of any wrongdoing doesn't mean it's true. Only a kool-aide drinker, such as yourself, would believe such nonsense! ROMNEY/RYAN 2012!!!
James R Hoffa October 14, 2012 at 05:55 PM
Hoffa should also add that the Romney/Ryan tax cut is NOT a $5T tax cut - that is yet another LIE!

Mr. Forand, I am certain that you, as a liberal/progressive, have a much greater intellect than a mere conservative like myself. Could you please explain how a company that is only abel to meet 88% and 75% of their obligations, isn't in bankrupt or at least in need of a major restructuring.
H.E. Pennypacker October 15, 2012 at 03:42 PM
Bernie, Keif, Lyle, Bren, Randall, etc etc etc have never run a lemonade stand, they are liberals who have not amounted to a hill of beans in the big scheme of things.
