U.S. Presidential Election 2012: Obama reacts swiftly to the naming of Paul Ryan as Romney's running mate
Barack Obama's supporters could have added that Paul Ryan was one of those who voted for the Financial Services Modernization Act of 1999 which paved the way for the widespread financial institutions collapse that caused the Global Financial Crisis. A crisis still reverberating around the world today.
A point these supporters could legitimately make, given Obama did not begin serving in the US Senate until January 2005.
They might also have added that Ryan reportedly received US $1,416,466 in political contributions from financial institutions prior to his vote.
