President Biden is being asked to take action and actually do something to help protect America.
“Republicans on the House Armed Services Committee are urging President Biden to increase the national defense budget for 2023, warning that the country ‘cannot afford to shortchange’ national security amid ‘unprecedented threats’ facing the United States,” reports Fox News.
President Biden recently announced his $5.8 trillion budget proposal for 2023, and said his defense proposal is “one of the largest investments in our national security in history.”
However, all 28 Republicans on the House Armed Services Committee are calling for an increased budget to ensure “sufficient defense topline.”
House Armed Services Committee ranking member, Republican Representative Mike Rogers of Alabama explained the request for an increased defense budget.
“Our nation faces unprecedented threats from China and Russia and it’s unconscionable that President Biden has chosen to once again shortchange our warfighters,” Rogers said.
“By failing to account for inflation, President Biden’s budget request would leave America weakened and vulnerable,” Rogers added.
