Congress Forced to Legislate Nuclear Upkeep as Obama Fails to Uphold START
In order for the Senate to approve the new START Treaty, President Obama had to make certain promises about upkeeping our nuclear deterrents; so far he has walked away from those promises.
Rep. Mike Turner and his colleagues are working on legislation that would force Obama to stand by the promises he made to the Senate and the American people. America has not adequately taken care of its nuclear arsenal; we have not upgraded the technology or modernized the infrastructure that supports the weapons.
In order to be a nuclear power we must have a creditable deterrent, not something that is based on decades old technology or hasn’t been tested in over 20 years. It is unbelievable that the president is even considering reducing our nuclear arsenal by 80%; we are the only country that is reducing its nuclear weapons program.
Our missile defense shield is the only system that can protect America from an Iranian or North Korean attack, and Obama has continually cut that capability.
