THE CONSERVATIVE CASE FOR DEFENSE CUTS: The National Taxpayers Union and R Street Institute are launching a new webinar series on how to rein in the defense budget.
“The conventional wisdom is that conservatives should support large and growing defense budgets but we believe all government departments should be assessed on what we’re getting for our spending,” said Jonathan Bydlak, director of the Fiscal and Budget Policy Project at R Street. “We can be safer and save money by turning a watchful eye on the federal government’s largest bureaucracy.”
The series kicks off Dec. 3 with a discussion on “how Congress, military officials, and civil society leaders can rethink and reframe political, ideological, and policy debates around Pentagon spending.”
