ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan calls the Obama administration's requirement that hospitals and universities, including Catholic ones, be required to offer contraception an "assault on religious liberty."
Ryan spoke at a town hall meeting in Orlando Saturday, saying GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney would reverse that decision if he's elected president.
Ryan was responding to a woman's question about whether he would ask Vice President Joe Biden in a debate how he reconciles his views as a Catholic with the Democratic Party platform.
Ryan also condemned the Obama administration's space program in central Florida, where thousands of jobs have been lost.
Earlier Saturday, Ryan courted Cuban-American voters at an event in Miami. He promised that a Romney administration would "clamp down" on the island's communist government.
