Warner Opposes DOD Cuts

Warner Opposes DOD Cuts: Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John Warner (R-Va.) and five of his colleagues have expressed their ire over the expected $32 billion defense budget cut for 2007-11. The six on Dec. 16 sent a letter to President Bush outlining their opposition to ending the “modest” growth that, over the past few years, has helped the military recover from the “procurement holiday” of the 1990s.
