Former Vice President Dick Cheney says the United States needs to spend more money on the military and less on food stamps and highways. Cheney was speaking at a “playbook lunch” hosted by Politico reporter Mike Allen that included his wife, Lynne, and daughter, Liz.
“Turn around the whole trend with the United State military,” Cheney said. “That ought to be our top priority for spending. Not food stamps, not highways, or anything else. Your number one responsibility as president is to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. He’s the commander-in-chief and he’s absolutely devastating the United States military today.”
Cheney was offering advice for the next president, as well criticizing President Obama.
