While the Pentagon budget is long overdue for much-needed spending cuts, policy-makers looking for places to trim would be short-sighted if they don't recognize the need for an effective missile defense.
Cutting waste at the Pentagon and strengthening our economic security will strengthen our national security. Congress can avoid sequestration's meat-cleaver approach, and instead use a scalpel to make strategic cuts.
We are not delusional or naive enough to expect that getting to maybe will be an easy task. We recognize that over the past few years, compromise in Congress has become an oxymoron and bipartisanship a dirty word.
