Turner Statement on Obama Defense Budget Cut Proposal

Congressman Mike Turner released the following statement upon the news that President Obama has suggested $400 billion in cuts to the Department of Defense:
 
“While I share the President’s goal of a government that lives within its means, it should not come at the expense of our national defense. His suggestion of an arbitrary cut of $400 billion comes without explanation or study. Simply cutting our defense budget while we are in the midst of three wars, puts at risk an already stretched thin department. I look forward to working with Armed Services Committee Chairman Buck McKeon to find efficiencies in our Defense Department. Thoughtfully reinvesting these efficiencies and creating a more cost-effective Department of Defense strengthens our national security and saves dollars.”
