Earlier today, the Chairman of the House Budget Committee, Paul Ryan (R-WI), made the following statement regarding our nation's military leaders at a forum held by the National Journal:
"We don't think the Generals are giving us their true advice. We don't think the generals believe their budget is really the right budget."
Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-20), a member of the House Budget Committee, made the following statement regarding Paul Ryan's comments:
"I think it is shameful that Chairman Paul Ryan has called into question the credibility and integrity of our nation's top military Generals, essentially stating that they violated their oath to uphold the Constitution by lying to Congress. This is a very serious allegation and I am stunned that Chairman Ryan would accuse the leaders of our military of violating their sworn oath. I call on Chairman Ryan to apologize for impugning the reputation of our nation's military leaders."
