This is a very positive and strong NDAA for FY2019. The strengthening of the American armed forces continues under the Trump Administration and the fine leadership of Defense Secretary Mattis. This authorization contains no poison pills and does exactly what it should; satisfies the Federal Governments responsibility to defend and secure our Nation and our way of life. By the way, for all you leftists and budget hawks who say we are authorizing and appropriating too much money in Defense, don’t forget what happened when America reduced defense spending: emboldened Russia invaded Ukraine and annexed Crimea, an enriched Iranian Government harassed our Navy and expanded their terrorism, North Korea polished and completed their nuclear weapons program, and ISIL took over Iraq and Syria and attacked the homeland on what seemed like a monthly basis. God Bless our military and God Bless America!!!!
