Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan (R-WI) says his focus is on improving the economy and cutting the deficit before the U.S. gets into a European-style crisis, not the political games taking place in Washington and on the presidential campaign trail.
Ryan says what matters most to him is how we handle this moment and the crisis America is facing, both now and four years in the future.

Noting his name is still being mentioned as a possible future presidential candidate, Ryan stated this country’s economic problems are what need immediate attention. He says his ambition is not higher political office, but to protect those who have retired, get the economy growing, and get the national debt under control.
Ryan says, if he really wanted to be President, he would have been running already because “it’s the most open field race we’ve had in modern history.”
