Aliens and Nukes and Health Care

Forget Health Care - friendly aliens have appeared in orbit, and they have a plan for humanity's infinite prosperity.  "Join our Interstellar Economic Collective," they say, "and you, too, can reap the tremendous benefits of our patronage."  But wait - first, humanity must prove itself.  It must ensure its peaceful purposes.  "Once you have destroyed the last of your nukes and all of your strategic weapons," the aliens say, "you may join us..."

And so you're a senator.  It's a close vote - will the U.S. turn all those nukes and submarines into frying pans?  Or is this one of those peace treaties we'd better skip...
