Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan is telling voters in Ohio that poverty is winning in the war on poverty.

In a speech Wednesday, Ryan said he and running mate Mitt Romney would work to help poor people climb out of poverty and help middle-class workers feel they are on stronger financial ground. He says all Americans should have the opportunity to achieve their full potential, no matter their background.

Ryan also criticized existing anti-poverty programs that he says are not working. He says that for all the money spent on such programs, the government could give each poor person a check for $22,000.

Ryan spoke at Cleveland State University.
