Irresponsible vote

Sen John Kyl, Republican of Arizona, said today that defense spending cuts insisted on by President Barack Obama as part of the deal to raise the nation's debt ceiling are "irresponsible" and amount to the "knowing destruction of the U.S. military.”

“Can you imagine anything more irresponsible than for the commander in chief of the military to promote, not just promote, but insist on the knowing destruction of the U.S. military as a means to threaten Congress?” Kyl said on the Senate floor, according to The Associated Press.

Kyl then voted in favor of the debt ceiling legislation.

Here's a dollar, John. Go buy yourself a spine.
