Putting America last is dangerous. It weakens the nation while allowing our enemies to have substantial advantages over us. Unfortunately, the Biden administration continues to put America last and moreover prioritize radical socialist policies.
The current president is not doing the United States any favors. Gas prices, costs of insulin, and other goods are rapidly surging. Meanwhile, the Southern border has become overrun, thanks to a nightmare of illegal immigration created by President Biden. Amid all of this, the Biden administration is still seeking ways to increase taxes on the American public.
Another issue coming from this president is his defense budget. As Breitbart News confirms, Republican senators this week called out Biden for failing to appropriately defend this nation.
The Weak Defense Budget from President Biden
Biden’s defense budget fails to take into account inflation rates and grants immense funds to leftist, socialist pet projects, rather than funding the U.S. military. This is not only a national disgrace, but it also places the country’s defense at serious risk.
Earlier this week, five GOP senators sent a joint letter to President Biden detailing their concerns. In Republicans’ letter, they warn that the president’s defense budget is ultimately giving China free reign to eventually dominate the United States. This is especially troubling, notably since China’s defense budget has surged as America’s decreases.
Talk is cheap, but defending our country is not. We can't afford to fail in our constitutional responsibility to provide for the common defense. Both parties should be able to agree that we must maintain America’s edge over China.

GOP lawmakers warned that Biden’s current defense budget sends the wrong message to both our allies and our enemies. Republicans are therefore calling for this current president to show support for the U.S. military by funding them accordingly and therefore facilitating real growth.
Many Americans have been shocked to learn that much of Biden’s defense budget doesn’t even go to the country’s national defense. Instead, the Democrat president has funding going to anti-gun initiatives, climate change initiatives, etc.
Cutting our defense budget completely undermines DC Democrats’ tough talk on China & calls into question the administration’s willingness to confront the Chinese Communist Party.

Despite the differences between Republicans and Democrats on guns and climate change, none of it will matter if China completely overtakes America. Time and time again, Biden prioritizes political grandstanding for his base over taking real, strategic actions to put America first.
Slashing the U.S. defense budget is the last thing that a president with America’s best interests at heart would do.
