Rand Paul vs. Rubio on Military Spending: "I Want A Strong National Defense But I Don't Want Us to Be Bankrupt"

|

"Is it fiscally conservative to have a $1 trillion military expendature?" asks Senator Paul.

RUBIO: ...Yes, I believe the world is a safer -- no, no, I don't believe, I know that the world is a safer place when America is the strongest military power in the world.

(CHEERING) (APPLAUSE)

PAUL: No. I don't think we're any safer -- I do not think we are any safer from bankruptcy court. As we go further, and further into debt, we become less, and less safe. This is the most important thing we're going to talk about tonight. Can you be a conservative, and be liberal on military spending? Can you be for unlimited military spending, and say, Oh, I'm going to make the country safe? No, we need a safe country, but, you know, we spend more on our military than the next ten countries combined?

I want a strong national defense, but I don't want us to be bankrupt.
