Getting our fiscal house in order is a top priority, and recently I reiterated the need for balanced deficit reduction where everything is on the table. When Congress considered the National Defense Authorization Act, I proposed cutting the failed V-22 Osprey Program, which has resulted in 36 accidental deaths. Cutting the program would save $1.3 billion now and potentially reduce the national deficit by $10 billion over 10 years. I also proposed a study into the Department of Defense's hazardous material shipping program. Both of these initiatives would help the Department of Defense be more efficient in its spending and keep our troops as safe as possible.
