Congressman Steve King discusses defense budget cuts

Posted:
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

Government programs like Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, and food stamps may affect you.

And, Congressman Steve King said the budgets for these entitlement programs need to be re-visited in order to keep our defense budget at where it needs to be, especially during this time of tension between Russia and Ukraine.

"To address the military side of this, to suspend and stop the Hagel budget cuts, I would support that now and work out the balance of this thing and get the balance another way," King said.

He said cuts would make the U.S. vulnerable and with all of the turmoil internationally, and now's not the time.
