PHOENIX — When you think about the booming real estate market in the Phoenix area, you think of a bustling market of happy sellers and a flood of nervous buyers. But what about those who aren't looking to buy or sell a new home? The current market has a consequence many aren't thinking of.

Gaetz to General: Brightest Minds In America Are Working On Memes, Not Interested In Defense | Video [Video]

Rep. Matt Gaetz addressed National Security Agency administrator and the Commander of United States Cyber Command Gen. Nakasone on the problem of retaining talented people in the Department of Defense workforce at a United States House Armed Services Subcommittee hearing on Friday.GAETZ: I also want to associate myself with the comments of the Ranking Member of the full committee regarding the workforce and recruitment. We all know why you have retention problems. It is because the private sector pays multiples what we would be able to pay people and while pay certainly isn't the only thing that motivates folks it certainly can contribute to a lack of retention of some of this high-end talent. It used to be the case you know not too long ago that the brightest minds in Silicon Valley were working on cyber and munitions and lasers. The Department of Defense was the most important customer and often the most important investor and now I'm concerned that the brightest minds in America are working on likes and shares and memes and other activities that don't directly connect to the mission of the department and so I think it's essentially critical for us to follow the thread that Ranking Member Rogers laid out to actually develop more of that pipeline earlier.
