Chris Christie vs. Rand Paul on Military Spending

Recommended Posts

Chris Christie has been taking criticism for not supporting higher defense spending. Rand Paul has suggested cutting spending elsewhere to afford raising the defense budget. Christie believes that this is illogical and lashed out against Christie and Washington politicians as a whole, stating “so if Senator Paul wants to start looking at where he’s going to cut spending to afford defense, maybe he should start looking at cutting the pork barrel spending that he brings home to Kentucky, at $1.51 for every $1.00 and not look at New Jersey, where we get $0.61 for every $1.00. So maybe Senator Paul could — could, you know, deal with that when he’s trying to deal with the reduction of spending on the federal side.  But I doubt he would, because most Washington politicians only care about bringing home the bacon so that they can get reelected.” Paul lashed back, asking, “this is the king of bacon talking about bacon. You know, we have two military bases in Kentucky. And is Governor Christie recommending that we shut down our military bases?” Many, including Paul, believe that Christie is making a mistake by fighting his own party on this issue, and that it will hurt his chances in future elections.
