Skelton Chooses New Entitlement Program Over Missile Defense

June 18th, 2009 by MarkTwain · No Comments

It may be time for Congressman Skelton to give it up. This was his incredible excuse for voting against missile defense:

“For too many years, we have not taken a balanced approach to missile defense, we have spent far too much money on programs that do not protect us from the threats that truly exist.”

Does the Congressman not watch the news! In between the media’s obsession with Obama, they did report on North Korea’s recent missile and nuke tests. North Korea is even threatening to shoot a missile towards Hawaii! 

Just days after his no vote on keeping us and our troops safe with a missile shield, Skelton holds a big press conference touting his new supplement to the New Post 9/11 GI Bill saying “this is the year of the military family.” (Audio)

When it comes to the choice between a new entitlement or the safety of their children and loved ones in harm’s way, we’re almost positive that the military families would rather have the missile shield instead.
