House Speaker John Boehner's deficit reducing plan has picked up one key supporter, Rep. Paul Ryan, according to his Op-Ed column in the National Review.

"The Budget Control Act takes an important step in the right direction by cutting $1.2 trillion in government spending over the next decade," Ryan writes. "Critically, it does this without resorting to Senator Reid’s gimmicks and without imposing the president’s preferred tax increases on American families and the struggling economy."

Ryan admits that Boehner's plan needs more work, and that it is not the sole solution for reducing the nation's debt:

"This bill is far from perfect. We still have a long way to go toward getting the key drivers of our debt — especially federal health-care spending — under control. But considering that House Republicans control only one-half of one-third of the federal government, I support this reasonable, responsible effort to cut government spending, avoid a default, and help create a better environment for job creation."
