FILE - This Aug. 18, 2012 file photo shows Republican vice-presidential candidate Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., right, introducing his mother, Betty Ryan Douglas, to supporters at a campaign rally in The Villages, Fla. Get in line, Medicare and Social Security. Seniors, like just about everyone else, have money on their minds. Seniors vote at a higher rate than any other age group, so they'll be a deciding factor in the presidential election. Seniors backed the Republican candidate in the last two presidential elections. (AP Photo/Phelan M. Ebenhack, File) Photo by
