Ryan is only Wisconsin House member to vote against freeze in Pentagon spending

An amendment to cut $1.1 billion from the 2013 Pentagon budget, effectively freezing the military budget at this year’s levels, passed the House on a bipartisan 247-167 vote last week.

Remarkably, all but one of the Wisconsin members of the House, Republicans and Democrats, voted for the cuts.  Even arch-conservative Jim Sensenbrenner voted yes.

Who didn't? Self-styled fiscal hawk and budget-cutter Paul Ryan. 

It was a somewhat small but nonetheless important step, and other amendments for more Pentagon cuts and ending the war in Afghanistan unfortunately didn't pass in the Republican-controlled House

 Here's the vote breakdown.
