Christie at Pembroke VFW
At a May 12 town hall meeting in Pembroke, NH, I asked NJ Gov. Chris Christie a question about the planned $1 trillion expansion of the US nuclear weapons capability. He responded by suggesting the money would be better spent on other aspects of our defense. I think the money slated for spending on nuclear weapons modernization should be spent on human needs, not, as Christie suggested, other weapons systems. Nevertheless, I'm glad he agreed that "the issue you’re pointing out on nuclear weaponry are the kind of things we should have a robust open debate about in this country... I know what you’re talking about but I bet you not many people know that that’s what’s going on." It will be an accomplishment if we can get candidates of both parties to discuss nuclear weapons policy, and how the profit motives of Pentagon contracts influences nuclear weapons spending.
