Until the United States Coast Guard is included in the military budget, I implore you to vote NO. The CG is the smallest military branch and have the smallest budget but the plan calls for reducing it another $1.2 billion (give or take a few hundred million). I'm not sure if the Republicans and the White House are aware, but the Coast Guard is our border protection along the 97,000 miles of (un-walled) coast. Also, I thought the idea was to strengthen our military and upgrade and modernize their equipment. The Coast Guard is doing the best job they can with 40+ year old boats and crumbling infrastructure.
