Moore Campaign Asks if Doug Jones Will Kill our Defense Industry to Fund Obamacare

MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Seventy-six years ago, Christmas was interrupted in America when our military base at Pearl Harbor was attacked without warning. This historic event offers important context for today’s sixth question of Christmas that we ask Doug Jones.

Christmas Question #6: Will Doug Jones kill our defense industry to fund Obamacare?

The world becomes unstable during times of American weakness. That weakness should never be self-imposed. Our enemies will only stand down when America stands up. Obama gutted America’s military in a way that not only encouraged our enemies but discouraged our allies and put longstanding relationships with friends like Israel at risk. Alabama has always been a strong industrial supporter of our military, and we should maintain that role with pride.

Doug Jones was a vocal advocate for Barack Obama and all of his policies, and Jones supports massive spending increases on expanding federal government programs that will necessarily require a choice between cuts in our national defense or bankruptcy. In addition to putting the nation’s security at risk, Jones’ policies will also severely impact Alabama’s economy and job force.

Roy Moore is a West Point graduate, a Vietnam Veteran, and has the strong support of veterans throughout the state of Alabama. He understands that government’s first priority is the safety of its citizens, and nothing could be more important for our nation and our state than a vibrant and strong military. Roy Moore will stand with President Trump to rebuild the military and is the right choice for our Armed Forces and for our veterans.
