Common Ground: Sounding the Alarm On Defensive Spending Levels

Earlier this week, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin told lawmakers why a $60 billion supplemental funding request to support Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan is an essential U.S. investment — but with divided support on Ukraine aid, will it survive? And where do Democrats and Republicans stand on this issue and America’s defense spending as a whole?

Bret is joined by Senator Dan Sullivan (R-AK) and Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) to discuss how passing this supplemental would be a step toward prioritizing our nation’s defense, why there should be nothing bipartisan about ensuring our nation is secure, and the ways this money would benefit the U.S. directly as opposed to just our allies.
