What can the military expect from a Secretary Carter? Former Senator Jim Talent, now a senior fellow and director of the National Security 2020 Project at the American Enterprise Institute, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss.

Bill Greenwalt, Fellow, American Enterprise Institute

The Defense Department and Congress are trying too hard to reinvent the wheel in their debates on acquisition reform. That's according to Bill Greenwalt -- he's former deputy under secretary of defense for industrial policy -- and now a fellow of the Marilyn Ware Center for Security Studies at the American Enterprise Institute. He says the Pentagon should look back to the 1950s as a model for defense acquisition reform.

Ariel Rabkin, AEI's Center for Internet, Communications, and Technology Policy

The Digital Service will consist of a small team of experts that will serve as consultants to agencies on IT projects. Ariel Rabkin is a visiting fellow with AEI's Center for Internet, Communications and Technology Policy. He joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to explain why many IT projects fail in the first place.

Mackenzie Eaglen, Resident Fellow, American Enterprise Institute

The military's Vice Chiefs of Staff tell Congress the pressure they're under because of budget cuts and the potential return of sequestration in Fiscal 2016 is killing their ability to fight two wars. But Congress doesn't appear to want to pull back on capability, only on money. Mackenzie Eaglen, a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, writes in US News and World Report about why the chiefs are so concerned about the funding curve. She tells In Depth with Francis Rose, too much mission and too little money worries the Vice Chiefs of the military.

DoD in denial about budget future, experts say

Defense budget watchers say despite abundant evidence to the contrary, the Pentagon appears to believe it will eventually get most of its funding wishes over the coming few years. "Whether [sequestration] stays in place for nine more years is an open question, but it's certainly going to be in place for the foreseeable future," said Mackenzie Eaglen, a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute.
