America’s National Defense Is Also Women’s Issue, Sen. Joni Ernst Says

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.”
