Vice Presidential hopeful Paul Ryan stumps in North Canton

NORTH CANTON, OH (WOIO) - Republican Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan went after President Obama at a campaign stop in North Canton on Thursday morning.

"President Obama has run out of ideas. That's why his campaign is based on frustration and anger," said VP candidate Ryan.

The Wisconsin Congressman also slammed the President's healthcare reform law.

"He raided $716 billion from Medicare to pay for Obama Care," said VP candidate Ryan.

President Obama says Paul Ryan's proposal to overhaul Medicare would cost seniors $6,000 more a year.

When Mitt Romney picked Ryan as his running mate, campaign watchers declared the race would start to focus on critical issues like Medicare and the economy, but that's not exactly what's happened.

Remarks Vice President Biden made earlier this week prompted Romney to accused the Democrats of running a campaign based on division and hatred - the President responded in an interview with Entertainment Tonight

"Governor Romney has had very sharp critiques of me and my policies and that's how it should be. That's the nature of a democracy," said President Obama.

There have been calls from both sides of the aisle for the President to replace Biden on the ticket - but political watchers say that won't happen.
