Paul Ryan: Republican, Vice Presidential Nominee, Caregiver?

Representative Paul Ryan, presumptive GOP vice presidential nominee, kicked off a recent speech by revealing how he was introduced to the world of caregiving when his Alzheimer's stricken grandmother came to live with his family while he was still in high school.

He described what an eye-opening experience it was for him to help his mother look after his grandmother.

"You learn a lot about life. You learn a lot about seniors and your family. You learn a lot about Alzheimer's," he told the crowd gathered at The Villages, a retirement community in central Florida.

Ryan was in Florida to drum up support for his running mate, Governor Mitt Romney, the GOP presidential nominee. His speech focused primarily on outlining the differences between Romney's and President Obama's plans to save Medicare.

Obama's adjustments, as outlined in the Affordable Care Act (ACA), would be more incremental and limited, whereas Romney's reforms focus more on the program as a whole, and how it operates within the wider scope of the American economy.
