Zerban blasts Ryan budget

Kenosha Ald. Rob Zerban charged back against the perception that he hasn't drawn enough distinctions between his candidacy and House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan, the Janesville Republican with the state's largest campaign warchest.

Speaking before the Dem convention this morning, he said he's run successful small businesses and "lived my version of the American Dream," while Ryan has "lived off your tax dollars" since graduating from college.

He said that Ryan has shown through his budget that he would fight for lower taxes for wealthy Americans at the expense of education, seniors and health care.

"He has written the most destructive budget our country has ever seen," Zerban said.

He urged Dems to rally quickly around the races this fall following the recall races, noting that national Dems have limited resources to allocate among hundreds of House races.

"These are important races and important times," Zerban said.
