Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR) reports that Senator Al Franken (D-MN) intends to introduce a Senate resolution challenging Obama’s proposed plan to spend $1T for a nuclear weapons upgrade, and they are encouraging other Senators to co-sponsor the Resolution.
Sens. Baldwin, Franken, Markey, Merkley, Sanders, Schatz, Warren, Whitehouse and Wyden are reportedly on board, but more cosponsors would be valuable in raising the profile on the risk of nuclear arms. The proposed upgrade is well beyond what the Obama administration identified as appropriate in the 2010 Nuclear Posture Review Report, and, according to former Defense Secretary Bill Perry, it will be destabilizing: “We now are at a precipice of a new nuclear arms race.”
