Paul Van Dam on Homeland Security


We now have a lot of vulnerability

Homeland security, from protecting the nation's borders to providing local police with the right equipment, needs more attention, Van Dam added. "We are spending $1 billion a week in Iraq. It is bleeding this country, and we now have a lot of vulnerability," Van Dam said. "Overall, our first responders are not getting the money they need to make America safe. We need to focus on what's going on here."

Does not want another nuclear arms race

BENNETT: Bennett said while there is no need in today's world to use nuclear weapons, there is no way to be sure the nation will not need them as a deterrent in the future. While there are no immediate threats, North Korea, China and Russia could pose threats in the future. Bennett said nuclear weapons can be produced without testing.

VAN DAM: Van Dam said he does not want another nuclear arms race. Van Dam said Bennett's legislation would not prevent testing.
