What Congress does – ‘Congress Orders More Tanks Army Does Not Want, Sequester Cuts To Social Services Still Ignored’
Senior citizens don’t need check ins with Meals on Wheels.
We need more tanks and no waiting at our airports!
‘Republican Congressman Jim Jordan and Senator Rob Portman, both of Ohio, have been beating the budget cut mantra for awhile, claiming that Washington DC spends too much money’.
‘However, when it comes to a program involving their home state of Ohio, suddenly they are spending like drunken sailors, as they both are pushing for a half-billion in spending on new M-1 Abrams battle tanks for the US Army’.
‘The M-1, built in Lima, Ohio by defense contractor General Dynamics, is one of the worlds premier battle tanks. And, as the Department of Defense has stated multiple times, they don’t need any more’.

‘The two Republicans argument is that this is the only factory capable of producing tanks within the United States, so it must continue to be paid for, and tanks ordered, whether we need them or not’.
