“The greatest threat to our national security is our national debt,” said Senator Perdue. “The world is more dangerous now than any time in my lifetime and yet because of our government’s own intransigence, our military is in a weakened state. Today, we have the smallest Army since WWII, the smallest Navy since WWI, and the smallest and oldest Air Force ever. Admiral Mullen and I agree that our country’s financial situation cannot be ignored any longer. It’s time to get serious about solving the nation’s debt crisis so we can fund our military and confront the global security crisis before those threats are sitting on our doorstep.”
