Pentagon Begs Congress to Stop Funding Weapons it Doesn’t Need / Sputnik US – News, Opinion, Radio

“If I say ‘I need a thing’… there are a whole lot of people telling us, ‘No, this is what you really need,’” Greenert added.

The debate between Congress and the Pentagon has been going on for the past three years, with the Defense Department saying the U.S. should stop buying tanks and let defense contractors focus on foreign sales.

Congress, on the other hand, shuns Odierno’s proposals, constantly approving tank upgrades.

In 2012, the Senate voted to approve $181 million for tanks, and in Dec. 2014, it approved a $120 million budget on Abram tanks.

Some Senators also raised concerns about preventing the Defense Department from wasting money on unneeded equipment.
