"They're the Comeback Team, and they're going to help save this country."
WASHINGTON-This morning, Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus appeared on NBC's "Meet the Press" with David Gregory to discuss Governor Mitt Romney's vice presidential choice, Congressman Paul Ryan and how America's Comeback Team is going to save the country:
Priebus on the bold contrast between Romney/Ryan and Obama/Biden
"I think that if you lay out the contrast, and you lay out the choice to the American people, do you want to go down the road of debt, decline, and doubt. And by the way, taking $700 billion out of Medicare, as President Obama did. He stole $700 billion out of Medicare to fund European health care, we can go down that route. Or, we can put solutions on the table to big problems and have the debate."

Priebus on the Ryan plan to save Medicare and President Obama's path to Medicare bankruptcy
"If we do nothing and if we go down this road that the president wants to go down and these Democrats, Medicare will be changed forever as we know it. It will be bankrupt by 2024. Medicare is going broke. Every person in America watching this now knows that that's true. This president stole, he didn't -- he didn't cut Medicare. He stole $700 billion from Medicare to fund ObamaCare. If any person in this entire debate has blood on their hands in regard to Medicare, it's Barack Obama. He is the one that's destroying Medicare. We are the ones that are offering solutions as to how to, number one, preserve Medicare for seniors that are at or near retirement, and number two, figure out a way to make sure that for future generations, we're talking about if you're 54 or younger, how to save Medicare and social security. Now, these plans, Mitt Romney's plan, Paul Ryan's plan, this is a blessing to our country that we have people that are willing to have tough, serious debates about these issues, as opposed to a president who does a lot of talking, he loves the sound of his own voice, but he not only offers nothing, he makes everything worse."

Priebus on America's Comeback Team
"I think Mitt Romney's leadership, Mitt Romney's diversity at the Olympics, as governor, as someone who understands international business, I think combined these guys are ready on Day One, and they're the Comeback Team, and they're going to help save this country."
