Missing from Ryan's prescription to end the shutdown: Obamacare

Washington (CNN) - Republican Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin broke his relative silence on the ongoing government shutdown in a Wall Street Journal opinion piece published online late Tuesday night.

Ryan - the GOP's vice presidential nominee in 2012 and the chairman of the House Budget Committee - argues in the editorial that in order to "end this stalemate," Democrats and Republicans should focus on "modest reforms to entitlement programs and the tax code."

Romney contributes to Ryan campaign

(CNN) - Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney donated $5,200 to his former running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan, on June 3, helping to bring Ryan’s second quarter haul to a total of $1.1 million.

Even before he was on the ballot to be vice president, Ryan has always been a top fundraiser in Congress. However, he became a household name thanks to Romney, who featured him heavily in events throughout the 2012 presidential campaign season.

2016 watch: Potential contenders take a stand on Supreme Court rulings

(CNN) – With the Supreme Court announcing decisions on two big cases involving same-sex marriage Wednesday, an array of possible 2016 presidential candidates weighed in on the matter, positioning themselves in a highly-charged debate that could continue for years as states begin adapting to changes in the law.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who vetoed a same-sex marriage law in his state last year, said he did not agree with the Supreme Court's decision to strike down a significant section of the Defense of Marriage Act that denies more than a thousand federal benefits to legally married, same-sex couples.

Ryan: Obama administration 'more incompetent by the day'

(Updated)
Washington (CNN) - Rep. Paul Ryan Tuesday joined the growing chorus of figures criticizing the Obama administration's handling of the NSA leaks and its so-far unsuccessful efforts to extradite data leaker Edward Snowden.

Both Snowden's ability to obtain and leak the classified information on massive NSA surveillance programs and the U.S.'s inability to take him into custody "just reveals an administration that seems more and more incompetent by the day," Ryan said on CBS's "This Morning."

Mitt Romney to CNN: Rice appointment ‘disappointing’

Park City, Utah (CNN) – As Mitt Romney begins to re-emerge into the public spotlight with a Utah conference, the former Republican presidential nominee told CNN Chief Political Analyst Gloria Borger he was disappointed with President Obama's pick of UN Ambassador Susan Rice to be his next national security adviser.

"I find that a disappointing appointment on the part of the president. I think what she did was to very seriously mislead the American people about what happened in Benghazi. My greatest concern about the Benghazi events was the fact there was not a rescue effort attempted and that is very troubling to me," Romney said.

You can watch extended excerpts of CNN's interviews with Mitt and Ann Romney on “The Lead” at 4 p.m. ET and “The Situation Room” at 5 p.m. ET and 6 p.m. ET.
