Senator Ted Cruz on Military industrial Complex: A lot of pork and corporate welfare in defense budget

Hector Salamanca Arroyo on September 28, 2015
GUI Volunteer Hannah Armentrout asked Senator Ted Cruz a question on the Military Industrial complex, at his Iowa Headquarters opening. Senator Cruz responded by stating there are long term politicians who get into bed with lobbyists that grow government, which impacts the defense industry. Senator Cruz stated "there is a lot of pork and corporate welfare in the defense budget. You see for example members of congress adding items to the defense budget that the military doesn't even want but that a lobbyist is pressing for."

Question: What specific steps will you take to make sure our nation's national security policies are not warped by the influence of the military industrial complex?
