GOP Defense Hawks Claim Biden’s Defense Budget Gives China Upper Hand

China is going to get the upper hand if Joe Biden has his way Republican defense hawks claim.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

President Joe Biden’s $6 trillion budget proposal puts money toward universal pre-K and cracking down on the fossil fuel industry but shrinks the Navy’s budget for weapons procurement and building warships, leaving it at severe risk in a potential showdown with China.

The Biden budget—released on the eve of Memorial Day weekend—makes major cuts to the Navy in some of its most needed areas, such as building equipment and training sailors. The Navy will need to reckon with a more than 5 percent drop in shipbuilding dollars and the decommissioning of 11 combat-ready ships, including 4 advanced warships.

China, meanwhile, has increased its fleet size at breakneck speed and now touts the largest navy in the world. House Armed Services Committee member Mike Gallagher (R., Wis.) said the Biden budget puts the United States in danger of losing a World War III-style scenario.

“At a time when the Biden administration is proposing a $6 trillion budget that would lead to the highest level of spending since WWII, it is simultaneously proposing an inflation-adjusted cut to defense that will reduce our ability to deter WWIII,” Gallagher said. “Rather than act with a sense of urgency in order to deter aggression, the administration is kicking the can down the road on naval modernization, cutting Navy and Marine Corps end strength, and failing to fund key priorities outlined by US Indo-Pacific Command. Winter is coming, and we will have no one but ourselves to blame if we are not prepared.”

Joint Cheifs Chairman Mark Milley has stated that growing the Navy is the key to countering China.

Just more indications of the anti Americanism of Joe Biden and the Democrat Party. It must be nerve wracking to hate your own country that much.

Under the democratic Globalist communist party dictatorship, just like The New Green Deal, the Infrastructure Bill will be illegally forced upon us without our consent. Only gives 15 % of trillions of dollars goes to infrastructure, and rest gets pissed away on a leftest agenda to buy voters. Both plans like the election has to be shoved up our asses without our consent. Like the rigged election, and no sovereignty open borders we are get to pay for what lunatics want no the people, stuff we never asked for. Look if the democrats cared about democracy, they would protect us by closing the borders, allow federal non bias investigations in question election. If the 6 trillion dollar bill is not really for infrastructure change the name. The democratic Global communist party should call it the Bull Shit Bill to buy voters and support the millions of illegals to soon be on SSI. This way our dictatorship can last until the illegal majority of lunatics in congress can destroy, what will sacrificed their arms, legs, feet, eyes, skulls, and life to preserve, our sovereignty. To most the greatest threat to America is openly witnessed rigged elections, inciting racial hatred, weaponizing federal agencies, censorship, and having 98% of all information fed to us by leftest propaganda one party sponsored news. Biden said American democracy is a risk, he is right, until we can arrest all those responsible for the rigged elections. Under HR1 no voter ID and mail in ballots the democratic Global communist party will win every election illegally, and totally destroy this country we love. Pure evil sums up this dictatorship. Their communist goal total destruction of this country.

I wonder how the rank and file military feel about going to war under Biden. If China says “Boo!” many enlisted and non-flag personnel may leave when their contracts expire. In turn, although it’s unlikely, that could activate the draft. Regardless, I doubt that China would take action against one of the most powerful nations, particularly its best customer.
