Passing the New START Treaty before Christmas

Passing the New START Treaty is a good thing for Republicans, Democrats, Independents and everyone else in the United States and the world.

Hopefully Senators will seek common ground for what is best for the American people, instead of what is politically expedient for partisan politics.

As all living former Republican secretaries of state, military experts, strategic nuclear experts, and Republican arms control expert negotiators like Richard Burt have said on the record, the New START Treaty should be passed immediately.

Perhaps then they would stop using the New START Treaty as a political partisan football and seek common ground to make the world safer by signing the START Treaty.
