Still, Ryan has not shied away from his budget blueprint. He recently told George Stephanopoulos that the election will turn on the economy and health care.

"This election is a choice of two futures: Do you want a government-centered society and a government-driven economy and government-rationed health care? Or do you want the American opportunity society with a safety net, a free economy, economic freedom, personal liberty?" Ryan said on 'This Week' July 1. "That's what we want. That's the American idea. We have one more chance as a people to get that back, and that chance is going to come on November the 6th."

Ryan and his wife Janna have three children, Elizabeth, Charles and Samuel. He earned a degree in economics and political science from Miami University in Ohio. Before serving in the House, he was a political speechwriter for 1996 vice presidential candidate Jack Kemp, and later legislative director for then-Sen. Sam Brownback of Kansas.
