Your Views: Paul Ryan's budget cuts look in wrong spots

I wasn't surprised when Congressman Paul Ryan started balancing his budget by cutting benefits for the middle class, the elderly and poor.

I heard nothing about cutting the billions upon billions of dollars that the military wastes, or cutting aid to foreign countries that don't like us. How about cutting pork that is added to bills? Maybe cut fringe benefits for our leaders, subsidies to wealthy farmers and large tax breaks for the wealthy.

How about saying, “no more wars”? My goodness, I could go on and on, but it would take up a whole page plus. We are not the ones bankrupting our country; it's the government and all their wasteful spending.

Mr. Ryan, it's time you take a good, look at the real problem in this country.
