Republican vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryan said the most important principle to Mitt Romney when it comes to the budget is lowering the tax rates on Americans.

“That’s more important than anything,” Ryan said on “Fox News Sunday.” “We want to create more taxpayers. We don’t want to tax more people with bad tax policy.”

He said the No. 1 goal of Romney’s budget plan is an across-the-board, 20-percent income-tax reduction on all Americans.

“All the president’s offering is more of the same but with another round of stimulus and higher tax rates on job creators,” Ryan said.

In regard to the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya, Ryan upbraided President Barack Obama’s administration for its faulty response.

“The response was slow,” he said. “It was confused. It was inconsistent. They first said that it was YouTube video and a spontaneous mob.”

Ryan went on to say Obama’s foreign policies are “unraveling, literally before our eyes and our TV screens.”

“We’re seeing the ugly fruits of the Obama foreign policy unraveling around the world . . . ” he said. “This is a weak foreign policy with terrible results, which makes us less safe.”
