Tom Rogan: Obama Using Military Spending to Force Domestic Agenda

Columnist Tom Rogan argued that President Obama’s budget was “using military spending” as leverage to get what he wants on domestic policies, a move he said was “an extraordinary neglect of responsibility” on Friday’s “McLaughlin Group.”

“I think one problematic impact of it [Obama’s budget] is we talk about — we’re talking about ISIS at the moment, national security challenge. The president, as commander-in-chief, is using military spending, from an ideological point of view, he’s saying you’re not going to get military spending, commander-in-chief, I’m not going to fulfill that responsibility unless I get what I want, from the Liberal Democratic point of view, on other domestic spending. I think that’s an extraordinary neglect of responsibility at a critical moment” he said.
