House Democrats’ Plan to Secure Nation Is Less Than Two Pages Long

House Democratic leaders unveiled a national security agenda that is less than two pages in length and prioritizes combatting online radicalization and restricting gun sales.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.), Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D., Md.), and other leading Democrats unveiled the agenda for a “stronger America” at a Thursday news conference on Capitol Hill.

The three-pronged agenda focuses on securing the nation, its future, and its democracy. The white papers outlining each target area are roughly one-and-a-half pages long.

House Democrats’ brief plan to address national security comes at a time when threats facing the nation and its allies are complex, as demonstrated by Wednesday’s deadly truck attack in Nice, France. The United States is currently waging a campaign against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, deploying troops to Eastern Europe to help NATO deter Russian aggression, attempting to mitigate tensions surrounding China’s territorial claims in the South China Sea, and thwarting domestic terror threats, among other actions to protect U.S. interests.

Last month House Republicans unveiled a 23-page national security and foreign policy agenda—roughly 15 times the length of the proposals released by their Democratic colleagues on Thursday.

President Trump should make Ben Carson the Surgeon General.
Dr.Carson could do frontal lobotomies on people like Pelosi and Schumer.. maybe straighten out their wiring for them.

And how many hundred pages was the unaffordable health care law that stretch pelosi said we had to pass to find out what was in it?

This is a ploy to say we have a plan. They put together like 2,000 pages on a failed Healthcare plan but less than 2 pages for our National Security. Proves they are the Dumbocrat party.

It makes no difference how wordy a document is if it isn't enforced.
