Big Sis Refuses To Answer Congress On Bullet Purchases

Steve Watson Mar 21, 2013

Speaking at CPAC with Infowars and We Are Change reporter, Luke Rudkowski, Congressman Timothy Huelscamp revealed this week that  the Department of Homeland Security has refused to answer questions from  “multiple” members of Congress regarding its recent purchase of huge amounts of  weapons and ammunition.

“They have no answer for that question. They  refuse to answer to answer that,” Huelscamp said.

“I’ve got a list of various questions of agencies  about multiple things. Far from being the most transparent administration in the  world, they are the most closed and opaque,” the Congressman added.

“They refuse to let us know what is going on, so I  don’t really have an answer for that. Multiple members of Congress are asking  those questions,” he added.

“It comes down to during the budget process,  during the appropriations process, are we willing to hold DHS’s feet to the  fire?”

“We’re going to find out… I  say we don’t fund them ’til we get an answer. Those type of things really  challenge Americans. They are worried about this administration,” Huelscamp  urged.

The Congressman’s comments come in the wake of a demand for answers from New Jersey Congressman Leonard Lance on the same subject.

“I would like a full explanation as to why that has been done and I have every confidence that the oversight committee ….should ask those questions,” said Lance, adding that he shared a belief, “that Congress has a responsibility to ask Secretary Napolitano as to exactly why these purchases have occurred.”

The DHS has purchased over 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition over the past year – enough to wage a 20 year plus war. Earlier this month, Forbes Magazine called for a “national conversation” on the matter.

During the CPAC interview, Congressman Huelscamp also spoke briefly about why he  voted twice against the National Defense Authorization Act, stating that it was  because of the lack of detail regarding the provision in the bill to allow for incarceration of Americans without due process.

“I think it’s something that is so  Constitutionally suspect,” Huelscamp said. “It’s one of those things, if you’re not absolutely crystal clear on a Constitutional issue like that, we shouldn’t  take those chances.”
