Ryan: More jobs yield more taxpayers

CLINTON, Iowa (AP) — Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan says he and running mate Mitt Romney would help more Americans find jobs so that they can pay taxes.

At a rally at a county courthouse in Clinton, Iowa, the Wisconsin Republican on Tuesday faced a question from a voter about why so many Americans don't pay federal income taxes. Romney recently was embarrassed when he was seen on a secretly recorded video telling donors that he would never win the votes of those Americans who don't pay federal income taxes. Democrats have been merciless in criticizing Romney for the remarks.

Ryan says the answer is more jobs so workers earn enough money that they have to pay their share.
