“In foreign affairs Congress has a big role.” — Rep Jim Cooper

Every American has three people who represent their interests in Congress — two Senators and a Representative — on issues of war and peace, commerce and prosperity, and the functioning and aims of U.S. foreign policy and national security. There can be little of more importance to our understanding of world affairs than what our elected representatives’ roles and perspectives are in the arena of foreign relations.

In this episode Global Tennessee host Patrick Ryan and TNWAC Chairman Jim Shepherd talk with Congressman Cooper about the role of Congress in U.S. foreign policy, Cooper’s role as Chair of the HASC Subcommittee responsible for nuclear weapons and more, and a review of current global challenges for the Untied States.

Congressman Cooper represents Tennessee’s 5th Congressional District. He is assigned to the three most significant committees in the U.S. House of Representatives. He serves on the Armed Services Committee which ensures the military has the resources needed to defend America. The Committee oversees a $660 billion military budget.

Congressman Cooper serves as the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Strategic Forces which overseas our nation’s strategic weapons, ballistic missile defense, space programs and the Department of Energy national security programs.

He also serves on the Seapower & Projection Forces Subcommittee and the Intelligence, Emerging Threats & Capabilities Subcommittee.
