    Nice job Tea Party, smaller government has arrived. Unfortunately cuts will be made to the benefits of our kids we sent into harms way. But be proud, TP people, most of those kids were other peoples kids, not the kids of of members of Congress or other members of the power elite.

    We're not "sending kids into harm's way," you stupid asswipe. It's an all-volunteer force. When people like you are drafted, then you can try that line. Until then, STFU.

    You forgot to add "from projected spending increases." These cuts are meaningless. The amount of military spending is still increasing.

    Since you're not very bright, let me explain. The Bush Administration sent kids into harms way on an adventure, a war of choice. Your draft example is nothing but a canard; few those who volunteered were the sons or daughters of this nations power elite. For years I watched every Sunday morning the names of those killed listed by their ages and home towns scroll on the TV screen. Too many were E-4 and below, not yet 21 and from small town USA.

    500 hundred billion to be cut over ten years, benefits to be cut to those not retired is what I heard. So the kids who enlisted based on promises will not recieve what was promised.

    There is a difference between military spending and defense spending. Apparently you think military spending is the more important of the two, pretty strange for a liberal.
