Military spending is always a difficult issue for our country, but it's necessary. Although we strive to live in peace with all nations around the world, the reality of the situation today in 2018, is that many countries who do not have our best interests at heart are developing some of the most advanced weapon systems and capabilities. As your representative, I will not allow for our children to live under the threat of a nuclear North Korea or a nuclear Iran. Contrary to Representative Yvette Clark's actions, I would never have supported the Iran Deal, giving 150 Billion dollars back to Iran, who in turn is using the money to build more weapons to point at Israel, Europe, and the United States. I would stand firm, in providing our service men and women with the funding necessary in order to respond to these very real threats, notwithstanding military contractors being held accountable for waste and fraud.
