FreedomWorks’ Bill of the Month for July 2018: National Debt Is a Threat to National Security, H.Res. 919

FreedomWorks is proud to announce that our bill of the month for June 2018 is H.Res. 919, sponsored by Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.). The resolution, which has 36 cosponsors, would recognize that our unsustainable national debt poses a true threat to the security of our country. This simple fact is too often ignored by those who claim to be fiscal conservatives, yet use increased defense funding as an excuse to vote for higher and higher spending levels each year.

The Top 10 Reasons Why the McConnell-Schumer Spending Bill is a Bad Deal

The bill would blatantly disregard the Budget Control Act (BCA) of 2011 that requires Congress to adhere to budget caps – This bill goes above and beyond, busting the caps by nearly $300 billion over two years, more than twice that of the past two, two-year deals combined

Congress Must Support a New Round of BRAC

As passed by the House last month, the National Defense Authorization Act, H.R. 2810, contains language that prohibits a new round of Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC). An amendment offered by Rep. Tom McClintock (R-Calif.) to strike this section of the bill failed by a vote of 175 to 248.

The Pork in the Military Budget

There is perhaps no more important role the federal government has than providing national security. However, various special interests have been using this for their own benefit at the expense of the American people. As has been consistent for decades, several businesses have been using the defense bill to protect their industries, which has led to waste, inefficiency, and unnecessary spending with the taxpayers footing the bill.

Rampant Wasteful Spending in Pentagon Budget

Some lawmakers claim that we cannot afford to cut a dime of Pentagon spending. That is simply untrue. Like every federal government department, the Department of Defense is susceptible to wasteful spending and pet projects. Perhaps more so because many lawmakers do not seriously scrutinize the Pentagon budget for fear of being perceived as “weak on defense.”

We Cannot Afford $2 Trillion Increase in Military Spending

During Wednesday night's presidential debate, President Obama and Mitt Romney disputed over the military budget.  Obama accused Romney of supporting “$2 trillion in additional military spending that the military hasn’t asked for.” Instead of denying the repea

Audit the Pentagon!

There is widespread public opinion that taxpayers have a right to know how their money is being spent. Making government transparent and accountable is an issue that transcends left vs. right politics. And all of us should work together to shed light on opaque government agencies and departments.

President Obama is Not Actually Cutting Military Spending, But He Should

A top news story of the day is that President Obama is supposedly cutting almost half-a-trillion dollars from the defense budget. But this is simply not true. President Obama is not cutting a single dime out of the military budget. He is actually substantially increasing military spending over the next several years. Washington has once again cleverly disguised a spending increase as a “cut”.

Military Spending Cuts are Necessary

Millions of Americans have become unified by the message of lower taxes and less government spending over the past few years. Our voices were heard last November when a significant number of deficit hawks were elected to Congress. Many signaled that they were willing to put every item of the budget on the table. Yes, that includes military  spending. As Sen.
