Shuster supports missile defense

Today, Congressman Shuster spoke out in favor of restoring missile defense funding in the National Defense Authorization Act for FY2010. The President's budget cut $2.1 billion in missile defense funding. Congressman Shuster believes that now is not the time to cut missile defense, especially when North Korea continues its nuclear tests and Iran continues to defy international pressure on its nuclear program.

Here is video of the congressman's statement at the Armed Services Committee mark-up:
