Christmas Gift to the Russians

"Trying to force it through without ample time for debate and amendments would amount to a Christmas gift to the Russians" -John Thune on the START treaty

In addition to the Bush tax cut extension and the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell, the lame-duck congress is trying to push through a new arms control treaty with the Russia. Below is Sen. Thune's Senate floor speech voicing his opposition. Additionally, you can read the op-ed he wrote for the National Review here, as it is mentioned in his speech.
