Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., voted in favor of the Senate Armed Services Committee's version of a defense spending bill for 2012. However, when the legislation comes before the full chamber, he might vote against the bill. McCain says that the legislation includes "unrequested pork-barrel projects" and needs to do more to prevent cost overruns on the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program. "This nation is at a critical juncture of decisions concerning our conduct of three wars, our record deficit spending, and the dynamic state of world affairs," McCain says.
