Rep Ryan: It is our duty to save the American dream for our children.

Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan held a rally at The Villages, Florida. He was joined by his 78-year-old mother, Betty Douglas, as he delivered as speech on Medicare reform to the retirement-age community. Ryan told the crowd, "You learn a lot about life, you learn a lot about you elderly seniors in your family, you learn a lot about Alzheimer's. Medicare was there for our family, for my grandma when we needed it then and Medicare is there for my mom while she needs it now, and we have to keep that guarantee."

Ryan acknowledged that, "It's very clear President Obama inherited a very difficult situation. There's no two ways about it. The problem is he made matters worse." He reiterated that "Medicare should not be the piggy bank for Obamacare."

When speaking of Mitt Romney, Ryan proclaimed, "this man is a leader. Everything Mitt Romney has done in his life has prepared him for this moment in our history to provide the kind of leadership we need."

Ryan spoke of his own mother's story, "When my dad died, my mom went back to school. She went back to college, got a new skill, a new trade, and then she started a small business. My mom had three or four employees at that small business that she started. We were taking care of my grandma at the time, she was going to school, and then she started this small business."

He said to his mother who was sitting beside him during the speech, "And mom, mom I am proud of you for going out, getting another degree. I'm proud of you for the small business that you created. And mom — you did build that. That's what America is all about."
