Martha McSally on Homeland Security

 

 


End reckless, across the board military cuts

We must also ensure our troops are equipped with the best weaponry, technology, and training available to defend us. The reckless, across the board military cuts, otherwise known as sequestration, are hollowing out our military capability and diminishing capacities that will take years to rebuild. There are ways to gain efficiencies and savings in our defense budget; I know this first-hand from seeing the redundancies, inefficiencies, and waste throughout my time in uniform. We need a strategy-based budget, not a budget-based strategy. Savings should be found in a thoughtful, strategy-driven way, and I am well equipped to lead this effort.

The decisions we make today will be crucial to our security and standing in the world for decades to come. We need Members of Congress with the background and credibility to ensure America is strong and secure, and that is what I will bring.

Protect our $1B investment in the A-10 Warthog

I flew the A-10 "Warthog" for 325 hours in combat and commanded the one deployable A-10 Squadron at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. I know first-hand the unique capabilities of the A-10 to save American lives on the ground in harm's way. It can fly low and slow, loiter for a long time, and is incredibly survivable & cheap compared to all other fighter aircraft and aircraft under development. We just invested over $1 billion to upgrade the avionics and rebuild the wings on each aircraft. There is simply currently no other aircraft in the inventory or under development that provides this capability for our troops.

I have been active and engaged in defending the A-10 against elimination since the threat first became known. It took an op-ed from me in August of 2013 to alert Ron Barber of his party's own Administration's plans to axe the A-10.
