Linda Lingle on Homeland Security
Republican Governor (HI)
Hirono said Congress was right to raise the debt ceiling and needs to reach sensible compromise to avoid the deep cuts planned.
Lingle compared today's times with the period between WWI and WWII to say the US shouldn't let up on its defense spending or become more isolated.
Hirono retorted that nobody's talking about weakening national defense, but Tea Party Republicans have said the US should worry more about itself than other countries.
The Asia-Pacific region is critical to our nation's long-term economic and security interests. Not only has defense spending by major countries in the Asia-Pacific region grown significantly in the past five years, but the region has seen an increase in cyber-warfare, bio-security and human pandemic incidents in recent years, all of which represent threats to the US and to Hawaii. I will prioritize Defense and Homeland Security budgets to preserve and maintain resources in all of the forces in Pacific Command.
