Mitt Romney announced on Saturday that Wisconsin Representative Paul Ryan will be his running mate for the upcoming 2012 election.
"I'm excited for what lies ahead, and I'm thrilled to be a part of America's Comeback Team," said Ryan. "And together, we will unite America and get this done."
On Yahoo! Finance's Daily Ticker, Aaron Task and Henry Blodget contend that Ryan is a bold choice, saying that a Romney-Ryan economic plan will likely cut income and corporate taxes, preserve defense spending, and cut Medicare spending.
