Rubio on corporate cronyism
Arnie Alpert of the American Friends Services Committee asked Rubio and Brown how the government should address “corporate cronyism,” in which military “experts” calling for escalation are involved with companies that would benefit financially from sale of weaons to the Pentagon. "Steven Hadley," he said, "who used to be the National Security Adviser, is one of these people who is beating the drums for more air assaults but he is also getting paid $250,000 a year as a member of the board of directors of Raytheon Corporation, which sells Tomahawk cruise missles to our government."
Rubio said, “I’m not motivated to support a strong national defense on the basis of helping any company or corporation, but I do believe the United States must remain the most powerful, most effective fighting force on the planet. We should never be in a fair fight, ever.”
