ConservativeHQ- We are inclined to agree with Rep. Jim Bridenstine’s point that Congress’s core constitutional responsibility is to provide for the common defense.
But the record of congressional Republicans on exercising oversight of the Pentagon and spending is thin at best. In agreeing with Bridenstine we are counting on him to push for the same kind of oversight of the Pentagon and military spending that Congress should exercise on other agencies of the federal government.
In an exclusive op-ed in Breitbart, principled limited government constitutional conservative Rep. Jim Bridenstine (OK-1) wrote that “I have watched President Obama do some really audacious things – from unconstitutionally granting amnesty to illegal aliens to unilaterally changing Obamacare over 30 times. I never thought he would hold the military hostage to regulatory and social welfare programs.”
