King: Cutting Homeland Security Is "Shortsighted" Play

April 19 (Bloomberg) -- From the bombing in Boston to the ricin scare on Capitol Hill, is the U-S doing enough to keep Americans safe? On Bloomberg Government's "Capitol Gains," Peter Cook talks with Rep. Peter King (R-NY) who serves on both the Homeland Security and Intelligence Committees. King says "we have let our guard down" since 9/11 and hopes that this week's events will serve as a wake-up call. Meanwhile, he says Congress must reassess homeland security spending in order to make the country safer from attacks. (Source: Bloomberg)
