National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC


Mr. ANDREWS. Everyone here is alarmed, Mr. Chairman, about the possibility of a nuclear attack on the United States. We also should be alarmed about sticking to the facts in the debate.

The fact is we are talking about a weapons system here that failed two tests in 2010 and that hasn't passed a test since 2008. The fact is that, in the meantime, we have a robust, successful, tested regional system that can protect the homeland, the country, and the fact is that the general who runs this program said:

In the program right now, we are addressing and are prepared to come back to flight testing, but we've had two failures, and no matter what budget we're dedicating, we have to get over those flight test failures.

Fix it first. Fund it later. Support the Polis amendment.
