SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- The presumed Republican Party vice-presidential candidate, Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, will be in Springfield on Aug. 23 for a fundraiser. The Greene County Republican Party office says the event will be in the evening at the Ramada Inn Oasis Convention Center off Glenstone Avenue at Kearney Street.
The tickets for the fundraiser cost between $1,000 and $25,000. It's closed to the general public.
Presumed presidential nominee Mitt Romney announced Ryan as his vice presidential pick last Saturday.
$1,000 to $25,000 a ticket?
The event is closed to the general public.
I couldn't afford to go even if I wanted.
Frequent bus riders will remember Joe Cox, a co-worker at Ozark Wholesale Beverage:
In 1973 I was working at a warehouse making $3.25 an hour and Joe Cox, a guy I worked with, equated the cost of everything into how many hours he had to work to pay for it. Like, if a steak dinner in a restaurant cost $6.50, Joe would ask, "Is this steak dinner really worth two hours work?"To attend Paul Ryan's fundraiser would cost me one month's Social Security check for a cheap seat and 2 years' worth of Social Security checks for VIP seating.
