Rep. Paul Ryan Gives GOP Response to the State of the Union Address - Breitbart 


Ryan is Republican Point Man - Wall Street JournalWhen Rep. Paul Ryan delivers the Republican response to President Barack Obama's State of the Union address Tuesday, many viewers will get their first look at a man whom GOP leaders are trusting to manage a central policy issue—how to cut the federal budget—that could shape the party's image for years.
