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
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.”
