Ryan and Mother in Orlando To Visit Largest Retirement Community

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Vice presidential hopeful Paul Ryan is telling seniors they have nothing to worry about when it comes to Medicare and Social Security if his Republican Party wins the White House.

Don’t believe him? Just ask his 78-year-old mother.

Betty Ryan Douglas is set to campaign Saturday with her son in Florida at the world’s largest retirement community.

The presumptive GOP presidential ticket is trying to blunt withering criticism from President Barack Obama and his allies. The Democrats charge that Mitt Romney and Ryan would gut programs for older Americans such as Medicare and Social Security.

Obama plans to dig in on that point in New Hampshire on Saturday with stops in Windham and Rochester. Aides say he will cast voters’ choice as one between two very different approaches to government.
