Washington – Republican Study Committee Chairman Mark Walker released the following statement on the recently announced Budget Deal:
"Our military suffered tremendously under the Obama era of defense cuts and reductions. Every Republican in the Republican Study Committee supports a strong defense. However, Republicans are being offered a false choice today: either support the military or maintain fiscal discipline. I am disappointed this deal creates friction among Republicans who believe in both. We are committed to defend our families with more tanks and planes, but we must also protect future generations by freeing them from an insurmountable debt crippling any hope of pursuing the American dream."
