Jul 12, 2013 Full story: Reuters 20

Four U.S. Republican lawmakers on Friday urged Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel to conduct another test of the missile defense system this year after last week's test failure, and to make development of a next-generation interceptor a top priority.

Looks like Hagel is going to have to be spoon fed and have his hands held all the way through his term in office.

He should be smart enough to do this without the Reps having to tell him. Guess the Dems do not care or they are still trying to dig out from all of their scandals.

Another multi-billion $$$ missle defense system that no-one other than Raytheon asked for or wants.
Plenty of taxpayer $$$$ available for that.
Food stamps for the poor?
Not so much.
Nice "Fiscal Conservatism"

But there is no wealth, right? We're flat broke and up to our glayvins in debt, right?
So where is all this $$$$ for defense contractors coming from?

More money wasted on defense, as our troops are having their pay cut already. Why not close a couple hundred of those overseas bases we waste money on? End some wars. Cut waste. Shrink the Pentagon.

Of course Republicans won't ever do that. They're addicted to military spending.

"addicted to military spending." As usual, you don't know what the hell you're talking about...too much chris matthews..LMAO

Feinstien, Murtha, Pelosi, California Democrat Xavier Becerra, a senior member of the House Ways and Means Committee, has seen more than $19 million worth of work from Pentagon contracts awarded to his district since 2007

Democrat and a veteran of the powerful Appropriations Committee, James Clyburn, has seen almost $1.8 billion go to defense contractors like General Dynamics, ITT and BAE Systems, in his district

Democrats Patty Murray of Washington state, the supercommittee co-chair and a founding co-chair of the Senate Aerospace Caucus; John Kerry of Massachusetts, a former presidential candidate and current member of the Finance Committee; and Montana’s Max Baucus, who chairs the Finance Committee, all have defense interests in their states, although some are far more powerful than others

no lawmaker in all of Washington, D.C., received more donations from Boeing than co-chair Patty Murray. Of the $3.2 million that the missile-maker dispersed to lawmakers in 2009-2010, the Washington Democrat received $85,860. That sum was $20,000 more than was donated to the next two largest congressional recipients of Boeing money combined

Demorat polticians and kickbacks from military industrial giants are the big daddy of all.

Boy, you're funnier than a flash flood in an alka seltzer factory.

This about-face on military spending is a good example of what Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal was referring to when he pleaded with his fellow Republicans at a conclave last month to stop being the “stupid party.” Sequestration of defense funds would hit the Republican electoral base harder than independents or Democrats, dealing a severe blow to the economies of many Red States. As one defense lobbyist put it to me, the Republicans are trying to punish President Obama by “shooting their own states in the head.”

So according to you, because Dems also push for increased defense spending (something I've never denied and already knew to be a fact), that means that Republicans either a) don't push for increased defense spending themselves, or b) their support of greatly increased defense spending doesn't matter?

Which are you trying to pretend is true? Because your argument is pure playground, like a little kid shouting 'i knwo you are but what am I???'

Sheesh. Pathetic.

Pookie your straw man is a bit weak, the liberals have not had a budget since Obama was elected. Maybe if Reid would do his job and Obama would be realistic with his wishes something would get done, but with Obama it's his way or the highway or he moves the goal post and the MSM covers for him for those low information voters that need directions on how to use a straw.

Poor cupcake :(
Last budget passed by both houses was 2009.
If you'd finished your 10 year OU degree, you'd know that.
Low-information indeed ;)

Poor cupcake, Obama hasn't had one vote, from both republicans and democrats for any of his ridiculous budget proposals with three trillion dollar deficits.
