In this photo taken April 19, 2012, House Armed Services Committee Chairman, Rep. Howard "Buck" McKeon, R-Calif., presides over the committee's hearing on Syria on Capitol Hill in Washington. McKeon recently complained that for every dollar the U.S. is spending on homeland missile defense it is spending $4 on regional missile defenses, such as the one being erected in Europe. “What's more, European missile defense will be a 'national contribution' to NATO, meaning the cost will be borne entirely by the U.S. at a time when most of NATO is failing to meet even the 2 percent of GDP threshold,” he said.
