Barney Frank's Panel Recommends $1 Trillion in Defense Cuts. Think It'll Happen? | Crooks and Liars The link above talks about how Barney Frank wants to make a 1 trillion dollar chunk out of the DOD budget over the next 10 years. I saw this while walking by a TV earlier today and wanted to put this up. The link above isnt a link i like but I saw it on CNN i think i just cant find it. I think DOD could cut some funding but a trillion dollars is harsh and why the hell is it only the DOD that gets hit? The social programs are killing our country faster than anything so why not take a nice chunk out of their budget? I cant wait until i get to use the old M16 again and have to go out and buy my equipment because my government wont fund me getting items i need for war. I love how the same people that bitch our Soldiers were sent into battle under equipped are the same that cut our budget every chance they can so they can give some sorry ass more welfare.
