Rubio, Cotton want to boost defense spending
from The Hill
Sens. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and Tom Cotton, R-Ark., are pushing for an increase in defense spending. The pair used projections for fiscal 2016 included in a 2012 defense budget proposal by then-Defense Secretary Robert Gates. "I believe defense spending is the most important obligation of the federal government," the Florida Republican said. "This is the worst possible time to be reducing our defense spending ... and we are setting ourselves up for danger," Rubio said.
