Ron Paul: Why Isn't He Excited About the Nomination of Paul Ryan?Submitted by itzSteve on Mon, 08/13/2012 - 12:17
With many Republicans excited about Paul Ryan's vice presidential nomination, there is one Republican who is less than enthusiastic: Dr. Ron Paul.
Ron Paul's budget plan would balance the budget in three years and lower taxes.
In an interview August 11, 2012 on Fox News, Dr. Ron Paul called Ryan's a timid plan that adds to warmongering and money the U.S. spends overseas and cuts social programs, like Medicare. He doesn't like that the Ryan plan might balance the budget in 30 years. Dr. Paul wants to cut overseas spending by first stopping "militarism" (policing the world), which he differentiates from national defense spending.
