    Alleging Republican 'blind eye' on defense spending, GOP senator proposes cuts
    He's right. Considering its > 1/2 the discretionary budget is spent on *cough* "defense" & is ripe for abuse (see: Duke Cunningham (R) [he's in prison BTW]) The Pentagon has been the Repubs golden goose for too long.

    Been sayin' all along...The wheeling-and-dealing on the sequester is not about tax rates, but all about maintaining everyone's favored spending priorities.

    Most of us have no problem with responsible military spending cuts.

    $68 billion over 10 years is about like a rounding error.

    Nonsense.

    If the Pentagon can't wring $50 bil of waste and worthless projects like the JSF out of its $700+ bil budget, then they're not even trying.

    If we were as weak and worthless as Paraguay or Kosovo, we wouldn't need a military.

    Abolish the military, China will protect us.
