Bridenstine: Obama Holding U.S. Military Hostage

We are inclined to agree with Rep. Jim Bridenstine’s point that Congress’s core constitutional responsibility is to provide for the common defense.  But the record of congressional Republicans on exercising oversight of the Pentagon and spending is thin at best. In agreeing with Bridenstine we are counting on him to push for the same kind of oversight of the Pentagon and military spending that Congress should exercise on other agencies of the federal government. Please join the debate and tell us what you think in the comments section below the article.
