Both Ryan and Ellmers said the Republican-led U.S. House has passed a proposal to cut other federal spending so that defense spending can be spared from the sequestration. But the effort has gotten nowhere in the Senate, they said.

"The Senate has done nothing. The president has proposed no solution," Ryan said.

Romney believes that maintaining a strong defense is a top priority for the government and would work to get a balanced budget passed, Ryan said. Not doing so puts the military at risk, he said.

"The only way we maintain this exceptional nation this American idea is because our veterans have time and again, generation after generation, secured it for us," he said. "It's our duty to preserve this legacy, to support our voluntary (military) force of men and women ... and not let them be pawns in a political game."


Surprised much?
