In Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan points out that the Democratic convention, unlike the Republican convention, does not feature any debt clocks. (The GOP had two.)

“We just heard about an hour ago that our government eclipsed the 16-trillion-dollar mark in our national debt. This is a serious threat to our economy," he said. "We had a debt clock at the convention last week. I don’t see the debt clock at the convention this week. The problem is the president keeps kicking the can down the road. No leadership on this issue.”
