Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan’s mother, Betty Douglas, said she believes her son and Mitt Romney are the clear choice when it comes to protecting and preserving Medicare.

“Tonight’s debate showed seniors across the country that we have a very clear choice between the current administration, which has already cut Medicare by $716 billion to pay for Obamacare, and Mitt Romney and Paul, who will protect Medicare for retirees like me and strengthen it for my grandchildren’s generation and generations thereafter,” Douglas commented in a statement issued through the Romney campaign.

During the debate, Ryan aimed to personalize his push to reform Medicare.

”Medicare and Social Security did so much for my own family,” Ryan said.

“You are jeopardizing this program,” retorted Vice President Joe Biden.

Biden said he and President Barack Obama would never sign onto a voucher program proposed by Republicans, Ryan and Romney, but Ryan said the Republican plan gives seniors more choice in their medical care.

The Romney plan introduces subsidies to help future retirees buy private insurance or join a government plan modeled on traditional Medicare programs.
