How Paul Ryan has fared on the Truth-O-Meter
House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., who is Mitt Romney’s vice presidential pick, has been a regular on the Truth-O-Meter.
So have statements by others — often criticism from Democrats — about his budget plans and proposals to revamp Medicare and Social Security.
As of Aug. 11, 2012, PolitiFact Wisconsin and other PolitiFact locations have evaluated 14 statements by Ryan, a native of Janesville. Two were rated True and two Mostly True; four were Half True and four Mostly False; none were False and two were Pants on Fire.
As one might expect, nine of the 14 Ryan statements involved the federal budget, debt, taxes or spending.
