Running Mate Revealed

SERIOUS ISSUES: Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has revealed Rep. Paul Ryan as his running mate and potential vice president of the United States. Ryan is known for his big plans for the budget, which include large spending cuts and entitlement reform.

ROAD TRIP: No Labels Co-Founder Dave Walker is hitting the road on a bus tour to urge leaders to “get our fiscal house in order.” Walker says: ”The work needs to start right now, this minute — before Election Day, the installation of the new Congress, and Inauguration Day. We need to avoid the “fiscal cliff” that Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke has warned about, while setting the stage for a fiscal “grand bargain” in 2013.” David Walker for The Hill: Hitting the road to put our fiscal house in order

BLAME GAME: Republicans blame President Obama for a “lack of engagement” on preventing looming defense cuts. But both parties believe they can use the fiscal cliff as leverage to get what they want in a bigger deal. While the two parties waste time arguing and assigning blame, no progress is made on the issue: Bernie Becker for The Hill: GOP senator to Obama: Step up to help divert sequester defense cuts
