The Coalition for Fiscal and National Security is a bipartisan group of highly distinguished and respected leaders in defense, economic, and national security policy, who have served during eight Presidential administrations (both Democratic and Republican), and as leaders in Congress. 

The Coalition, convened by the Peter G. Peterson Foundation and chaired by Admiral Mike Mullen, emphasizes the fundamental link between America’s long-term fiscal health and our national security.  The group has released a new statement  to draw our country’s attention to the fact that America’s global leadership requires a foundation of economic growth and fiscal sustainability, and to the urgent need to update and re-prioritize our defense and foreign policy strategies to reflect a changing security environment.
