The Hill: Deficit Warrior Ryan Sees National Security As A Budget issue
When it comes to foreign policy and national defense, Mitt Romney’s vice presidential pick, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), sees things through a budgetary lens.
Ryan, the chairman of the House Budget Committee and the leading Republican in Congress on the deficit, has comparatively little experience with foreign policy or dealing with U.S. military leaders.
His main argument on defense is that national security will be compromised if the country does not get its budget deficit in order.
