Republican vice presidential nominee Rep. Paul Ryan acknowledged Sunday the campaign has made some missteps, but expressed confidence about victory — saying the presidential debates will offer voters a â€œvery clear choiceâ€ in the final weeks of the race between failed policies and a stagnant economy or a â€œbrighter future.â€
Ryan said on â€œFox News Sundayâ€ that Mitt Romney will have the chance during the first debate Wednesday to â€œgive the American people the choice we are offering.â€
â€œWe owe the country a very clear choice of a different future,â€ said Ryan, R-Wis. â€œWe can either have a dynamic, growing economy that produces opportunity, or we can have a stagnant economy that fosters dependency. We can stick with the failed policies of the four last years â€¦ or we can get a brighter future.â€
Ryan brushed aside recent polls showing President Obama leading Romney, and suggested that the so-called â€œmainstream mediaâ€ has helped the presidentâ€™s re-election effort.
â€œWeâ€™re going to win this race,â€ Ryan said.
The roughly 20-minute interview covered a wide range of topics, including both candidates’ economic policies.
Ryan said he and Romney want a 20 percent cut in all income tax rates, which would be paid by closing loopholes and deductions.
Ryan said Romney has been specific, but declined to say which loopholes, saying, “It would take me too long to go through all of the math.”
The Obama campaign responded by saying: “Romney has promised $5 trillion in tax cuts skewed toward millionaires and billionaires, but refused to say how he’d pay for them without raising taxes on the middle class or exploding the deficit. Heâ€™s promised to repeal ObamaCare, but refused to say what heâ€™d replace it with to protect the 129 million Americans with pre-existing conditions. Heâ€™s promised to repeal Wall Street reform, but refused to say what heâ€™d replace it with so that big banks arenâ€™t writing their own rules again.”
