Coming up this evening in primetime, Piers Morgan is joined by GOP Vice Presidential nominee Paul Ryan for a candid conversation on the country, in particular it's progress under the Barack Obama administration.
In response to the Democratic Party's perspective that things are improving thanks to policies put in place by the president, Ryan disagrees:
"To make the argument that they're putting us on the right track just defies logic. It flies in the face of the facts," says the 42-year-old U.S. Representative for Wisconsin. "You have to give President Obama the fact that he inherited a very difficult situation but Piers, I think he made things worse."
Comparing the nation's challenging economic situation to similar cases in recent history, Ryan finds fault with what he considers to be a lack of improvement:
"Usually when we have a deep recession in America, we come bounding out of it with fast economic growth and job creation. We did that after the '81/'82 recession with Ronald Reagan. We did that after the tough 70's recession we had," he tells the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host. "We're limping out of this recession right now. Economic growth is stagnant. Job creation is stagnant. The labor force participation rate is stagnant."
Tune in tonight as Morgan continues his coverage live from the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, as he welcomes Ryan, as well as Eva Longoria, Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, Sandra Fluke, and Cecile Richards.
