Oregon Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden says that he worked with vice presidential candidate Rep. Paul Ryan on a policy paper, not formal legislation.
"When Congressman Ryan's budget came to the floor earlier this year, I spoke against it, I voted against it, because I thought it would cause great problems, particularly for the most vulnerable seniors," Wyden told FOX 12 on Monday.
Wyden spoke to FOX 12 after a meeting on trans-Pacific trade and energy exports.
Over the weekend, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said that Wyden and Ryan co-lead a piece of legislation to save Medicare.
In a statement, Wyden called that "nonsense" and clarified that he worked on a policy paper on options for Medicare and did not co-lead a piece of legislation.
