Senator Rounds talks about the defense budget

WASHINGTON, D.C.(WNAX)- A number of Congressional republicans are talking about the almost nine hundred billion dollar defense budget as ripe for cuts.

South Dakota Senator Mike Rounds is not among them.

Rounds says the US faces many serious threats in the world.

Some top US Military officials are warning of possible conflict with China in the next few years. Rounds says that is not out of the question.

House republicans want to tie the soon to be hit federal debt ceiling with budget cuts.
