Senator Clinton Calls on BRAC Commission to Reject Proposed New York Base Closures

Senators D and R that don't fight for their state bases are few and far between (do they even exist?)--but you call out only Hillary as if she's doing something unusual ;-)

I see this issue as a riff on the tragedy of the commons...it's good for a state, especially the county in which the base is located, to have the base, but in aggregate, it's bad for the nation's coffers to have so many bases.
