Days Before Debate, Paul Ryan Appears on 'UpFront'

Updated:

On Thursday the first and only vice presidential debate is scheduled between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan.

Saturday night, Ryan was in Milwaukee for a fundraiser.

Sunday morning he appeared on UpFront With Mike Gousha, which airs Sunday mornings at 10am on WBAY.

"You see the polls go up and down," Ryan told Gousha. "I feel very good about Wisconsin. We're going to spend a lot of time in Wisconsin. Obviously I'm here right now."

Gousha asked Ryan on specifics, questioning whether more on his ticket's tax policy would be described Thursday.

"What we want to do is say this is our framework, this is how we create jobs, and we want to work with Democrats, work with Congress in how to fill in those details," Ryan said. "The last place you want to negotiate tax legislation is in the heat of a campaign."

As Mitt Romney and President Obama did days before their first debate, Ryan tries lowering expectations.

"You know I'm a policy guy," Ryan told Gousha. "Joe Biden is arguably one of the most experienced guys in politics. He ran for president twice, he's the sitting vice president. He's been doing this for 40 years."

What we can expect from Ryan on Thursday is an attack on the President's policies, despite Friday's jobs report and nation unemployment rate falling below eight percent.

"The economy is not growing near its potential," Ryan said. "It's actually slowing down. It's growing slower this year than it did last year and the year before. We're not even close to keep up with job growth to get people back to work."
