BigNews.Biz - Apr 16,2017 - Sasse Statement on President's NATO Commitment
"Without NATO, the Soviet Union would be quarterbacking half of Europe and Putin knows it."
U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, issued the following statement after President Trump departed from his previous rhetoric and reaffirmed the United States' commitment to NATO.
"Without NATO, the Soviet Union would be quarterbacking half of Europe today and Putin knows it. NATO is the most successful military alliance in human history. This was the right decision."
Ben Sasse is a United States Senator, representing the great state of Nebraska.
He was elected in a 2014 landslide, winning each of Nebraska's 93 counties, and securing the second-largest margin for a new senator in the history of the state. Living off of a rickety old campaign bus, he and his family campaigned tirelessly on a common-sense platform of restoring the Constitution to its rightful place and encouraging a more constructive politics where every public official works to make the American Dream achievable for every family. He believes in term limits and a humbler Washington, where the federal government does fewer things, but the more important things, more urgently, more transparently, and with less partisan screaming. Healthy lives are lived primarily in the private sector, and the vast majority of good policy is created at the state and local level -- and Washington should get better at talking honestly about these essential American realities.
