The Biden administration’s reported decision to hold America’s defense budget flat for the next fiscal year is concerning, Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, says.

Ernst served in the U.S. military for more than 23 years before becoming a senator. Today, as a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, Ernst is committed to promoting policies that strengthen the nation’s military.

The Iowa Republican, who in November won re-election to a second term, joins the “Problematic Women” podcast to discuss America’s military readiness and what’s happening at America’s southern border.

Also on today’s show, Kelsey Bolar, a senior policy analyst at the Independent Women’s Forum, joins the show to discuss a brand new Daily Signal documentary she is producing.

And as always, we’ll be crowning our “Problematic Woman of the Week.”

Enjoy the show!
