Our friends at Global Zero asked Jeb Bush for his views on the proposed trillion dollar nuclear weapons expansion. Bush said he could get behind a "Reaganesque" goal of multi-lateral nuclear weapons elimination. He also said he supports "modernization" if it's done in concert with arms reduction plans. In addition, Bush expressed concerns about proliferation and endorsed the Non Proliferation Treaty bargain that promotes civilian use of nuclear energy.
