Senator John Cornyn
Hudson Institute hosted an address by Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) on the importance of maintaining our defense budget to national security strategy. The Deficit Reduction "Super Committee" is expected to soon release recommendations on reducing the budget of the federal government. By cutting defense spending, we may be endangering our national security. Senator Cornyn will argue that the defense strategy should drive defense spending, not the other way around.
Senator Cornyn currently sits on the Senate Finance, Judiciary, Armed Services, and Budget Committees. He was first elected to the Senate in 2002 and previously served in Texas as a District Judge, a member of the Texas Supreme Court, and as Texas Attorney General.
Hudson President & CEO Kenneth Weinstein introduced the Senator. A question and answer session, moderated by Amy Kauffman, Hudson Institute's Director of Congressional Relations, followed the Senator's remarks.
