Biden Guts The US Defense Budget

Republicans step in to fix it.

In the joint statement by Senator Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK), Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), and Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL), they blast Biden for having prioritized trillions in spending on a “liberal wish list” instead of providing funding for America’s military, showcasing the president’s neglect.

The group of Senators reiterate what Biden recently said: “If we don’t get moving, [China] is going to eat our lunch.” The group thinks that, with the proposal Biden released, he’s showing China “should set the table.”

The Senators write that “China aspires to overtake America as the world’s dominant superpower.”

They point out China has been working towards this for the past decade: “China’s defense spending has increased by $200 billion, while America’s has decreased by $400 billion. China’s military investments match its desire to out-compete America and hold our military forces at risk.”

The group feels the Biden budget is bad enough that the proposed spending bill does not show it will help keep up with the inflation rate. The proposed spending currently shows”the non-defense discretionary budget increases by almost 20 percent in this budget on top of the trillions of dollars in new non-national security programs the administration is intent on spending this year.”

In addition, support for America’s military isn’t shown by the president. They write if the president wanted to support the military, Biden would match what he is spending at home. If the President did that, “China would get nowhere close to overtaking us,” they write.

The group concluded that “Biden’s budget proposal cuts defense spending, sending a terrible signal not only to our adversaries in Beijing and Moscow but also to our allies and partners.”

This in turn shows “cutting America’s defense budget completely undermines Washington Democrats’ tough talk on China and calls into question the administration’s willingness to confront the Chinese Communist Party.”

The Republicans emphasize Biden’s leadership in the Pentagon “acknowledges that the defense strategy they inherited is largely on the right track, and that resourcing the strategy requires significant real growth in the defense budget.”

If the military receives “anything less than real growth,” it will put the Department in a rough spot, having to “choose between taking care of service members and ensuring they have the tools and training to meet new and growing threats.”

The group of Republicans said Americans had tasked the “Armed Forces not only to counter threats from the PRC, but also from Russia, Iran, North Korea, and radical Islamic terrorists. We need to give them the resources they need.”

Right now, the U.S. is in a “long-term strategic competition with the Chinese Communist Party,” which has required “coherent strategies, creative thinking, and sustained investments in all our national security tools: military, diplomatic, economic, technological, informational, intelligence, and more,” they said.

The Senate Republicans are ready to work on bipartisan legislation to address the ongoing threat from China. They said the “process can’t work if the administration insists on budget cuts for the most important tool in our toolbox.”

The progress the military has made to enhance its power, they said, “represents the best deterrent against near-term threats posed by Xi’s People’s Liberation Army.” Tough talk is not enough to attract the attention of Beijing, they said, but rather “American defense spending and combat-credible American forces in theater” will.

The Republicans said in the press release, “talk is cheap, but defending our country is not.”

It is the “constitutional responsibility to provide for the common defense,” they said, emphasizing “we can’t afford to fail.”

“To keep America strong, we must balance domestic and defense spending priorities,” which has to include Biden keeping his promise to work in a bipartisan manner. “Both parties should be able to agree that we must maintain America’s edge over China,” which is why the group of Republican Senators urged Biden to go at this with bipartisanship.

  1. Time to Boycott China on everything before we lose this country. No Olympics and tell them to turn all their container ships around also. We can make or import it from a friendly nation instead…or go without for a short time. WE made it through the Pandemic so far. If we have to go toe to toe with them then let’s do it while we are still strong. In 4 years we will be on the losing side. In the meantime Biden will do nothing when China takes over Taiwan just like Hong Kong. Just watch. It will happen soon.

    I would be my last dollar they are fine tuning a Covid 20 deadlier virus although this time will create a vaccine prior to release. They can cover their own selected people and the rest of the world will crumble. Not a shot fired. I am not a conspiracy nut but this scenario is likely. Nobody can win with Nukes.

  2. Yes it shows that China has us right in their sights with Biden being owned by them Maybe that red dawn may come to pass except with Chinese Biden is a sleep at the wheel He has never done anything in his life but make his lies sound convincing He has never done anything He knows nothing of how to run a rowboat much less our nation Biden says our constitution is not absolute I know he is talking mainly 2nd amendment It does not matter which it is a violation of the constitution itself Biden will not get away with it The Supreme court will have to step in and allow the peoples grievances I believe that the key is “will not be infringed upon” and I know it does not say a particular firearm and also does not say you can’t have a 155 in your back yard either This is the USA we are not a bullshit country that will just sit back and take it

  3. China knows they’re dealing with a paper tiger now. Much like how a shark reacts to blood in the water, they’ll start flexing their muscles. They didn’t bend over backwards to help “China Joe” get elected because he’s a great guy. If China doesn’t invade Taiwan in the next 4 years, I’ll honestly be astonished. Sure, we’d feign outrage, but that would be it. And with Taiwan in hand, they will become even more emboldened.

  4. Biden is gutless. He’s stumbling around like the stringless puppet that he is. God help us all. Biden is dangerous to America, and the world. What a mindless goon!

  5. If our government will not defend the American people then they are not our government…it’s time to put people in our government that will do the will of it’s people..there will be no communism or dictators in our free country….the American people will die defending our way of life.

  6. the man is a danger to our country, in less than 3 months he has turned us into a laughing stock around the world.

  7. Look once again to the democrats wanting to make this country a communist country. Everybody keeps saying socialist, but that is not what the democrats want. They want absolute control over everything in this country, and that is communism!!! That is why Biden The Bastard, is starting out with killing the first 2 amendments!! Everyone thinks he is not going to take everyone’s guns, but what he is doing now, will further his agenda. Since we are the boss, he needs to be stopped, along with every single democrat that believes as he does!!!

  8. China is preparing as we speak to wage war on Taiwan.
    It’s just a matter of time, like a few months at most. Russia wants the Ukraine. China has teamed up with a 25 year contract with Iran. It’s going nuts over there. I’m not only 3 months this dysfunctional man is destroying our country. God help us all!

  9. Biden needs to keep military budget strong and not weaken our forces as Obama did.
    President Trump made it a priority to fix the depleted funds that Obama had left our military after 8 years of cuts. Joey needs to get the job done or leave our country weak for China to over power us.
    Wake up sleepy Joe!

  10. Dementia Joe is SCUMBAG IDIOT. UnAmerican SEWER GUTTER TRASH. OUR MILITARY IS HIGH PRIORITY THAT IS IMPORTANT FOR OUR COUNTRY. WORTHLESS ILLEGALS ARE YOUR F**KING TOP PRIORITY. DIE DAMN YOU—TAKE PIGLOSI/HO HARRIS WITH YOU. HELL BOUND LOWLIFES********

  11. This PARASITE needs to GO ! Biden (Joe China) is now bowing to the Chinese Communist
    Government , Iranian Government , Ukraineian and Russian Government. Joe is their#1 asset. O’Brien is following Obama’s footsteps and Agenda for a THIRD WORLD COUNTRY..

  12. “Beijing Joe” Biden is a TREASONISTIC Left Wing TRAITOR . . . IMPEACH and CONVICT him as per the U.S. Constitution! One Enlightened Patriot. Team Trump and His Allies 2020 – MAGA (WE’RE NOT going away!).

  13. The ONLY thing TYRANTS hate is a GREAT MILITARY!
    The chinese stooge is preparing the table with the “finest china of the White House” to bring XI in power in the US.
    NOW IS THE TIME FOR ALL GOOD MEN AND WOMEN TO RID THE COUNTRY OF THE TRAITORS. THE DEMONS ARE DESTROYING ALL THAT MADE THE US THE GREATEST COUNTRY ON EARTH.
    DEFEAT THE DEMONS AT THE POLLS.
