Representative Mike Rogers of Alabama, the ranking member of the House Armed Services Committee, along with the ranking member of the same committee in the Senate, Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma, said in a joint statement that it would be “profoundly concerning” to scale back any aspects of the nation’s nuclear modernization effort, especially in light of Russian and Chinese developments. 

The two lawmakers were responding to a report that President Biden’s administration is considering cutting a trio of programs added or revived by the previous administration, including a nuclear-armed cruise missile now in early stages of development. 

“Reports that the Biden administration is considering abandoning long-overdue and much-needed improvements to our nation’s nuclear deterrent – when China is massively expanding its nuclear arsenal, North Korea is flagrantly violating UN sanctions on its missile program, and Russia is poised to launch the largest invasion in Europe since World War II – are profoundly concerning, and if true, would only invite further aggression,” the legislators said. 

“Over the past year, our committees heard from the nation’s leading defense and nuclear experts, including from within the current administration,” they said. “Their stark warnings on the threats we face were sobering — and their clear advice, from Secretary Austin on down, was to continue along the path of modernization.” 

“It’s almost incomprehensible that even now,” they concluded, “in spite of mountains of evidence to the contrary, bipartisan congressional, allied and expert opposition, and a security environment that seems to get worse by the day, the Biden administration continues to look for opportunities to weaken the ultimate guarantee of our nation’s and our allies’ security.”
