THORNBERRY ON STATE OF THE UNION

Jan 30, 2018
Press Release
"THE TIME HAS COME TO SET OUR TROOPS FREE."

WASHINGTON, DC Tonight, Chairman Mac Thornberry (R-TX), of the House Armed Services Committee, made the following remarks following the State of the Union Address: 

“I appreciate President Trump’s commitment to rebuilding our military.  As the world has grown more dangerous, Washington has repeatedly asked our troops to do more with less.  Even those insufficient budgets have been the frequent target of partisan hostage-taking, using vital resources for the troops as leverage for unrelated priorities.  The time has come to set our troops free.  Our military’s service to America is unconditional.  Congress’ support for the military must be unconditional as well.  I look forward to working with the President and Secretary Mattis to rebuild America’s military.”
