During a markup of the National Defense Authorization Act before the U.S. House Armed Services Committee this week, Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney offered amendments to the legislation that she said would reverse Democrats' proposals to weaken our nation's defense capabilities.

After much debate, the House Armed Services Committee rejected both of the amendments proposed by Cheney as well as several other Republican amendments intended to preserve funds for the nuclear arsenal.
