Price Applauds Release of National Security Task Force Report

WASHINGTON, D.C.  – House Budget Committee Chairman Tom Price, M.D. (GA-06) issued the following statement on today’s release of the report from the House GOP’s Task Force on National Security:

“By employing a dangerous lead-from-behind approach, the Obama Administration has spent the past eight years trying and failing to catch up to a complex and constantly evolving foreign policy and national security environment. The Task Force on National Security should be commended for producing a report that shows a clear commitment from House Republicans to change course and improve America’s security and credibility with a proactive strategy to protect our homeland, secure our borders, defend against rogue regimes, and defeat radical Islamic terrorism. Such a strategy will require resources to ensure we have the tools and the trained personnel to carry out the missions of our military, intelligence, and homeland security communities. The House Budget Committee is committed to being an active partner in ensuring we first set a strategy for the safety and security of our nation and then provide the resources necessary to carry out that strategy. Also critical to that effort will be robust oversight of national security activities and expenditures as well as the care of our veterans to ensure the most effective, efficient, and accountable use of resources in service to those who courageously serve our nation.”
