Congressman Paul Ryan to speak March 17 in Minneapolis

Congressman Paul Ryan, the Wisconsin Republican who was Mitt Romney’s running mate in the 2012 presidential election, will appear March 17 in Minneapolis at a private roundtable and a luncheon.

Sponsored by the Center of the American Experiment, the appearance at the Hilton Minneapolis has two parts:

  • Private Roundtable, 11:30 a.m., $5,000 per person
  • Luncheon, noon to 1 p.m., $100 per person

Reservations can be made online.

Organizers are using this quote from Ryan, who is the chair of the House Budget Committe, to promote the event:

“We spend $1 trillion more than we take in each year. In fact, we spend $3 for every $2 we take in. And we can’t keep that up. If we stay on this path, our finances will collapse. The economy will stall. And the most vulnerable will suffer. We need a budget that reflects our priorities — that expands opportunity.  The fact is, we cannot achieve those goals unless we budget responsibly.”
