    Let's get something straight now, the GOP does not care to have a serious discussion about getting rid of our debt.

    They should balk at cuts to the military.
    We happen to have several wars in progress. And we're going to start cutting funds to our men and women in harms way?
    Why not cut the Dept. of Education? A total miserable failure.
    And HUD?
    And the U.S. Postal Service?
    And about 50,000 deadbeat TSA employees?

    For starters.

    It's quite clear who's the adult in the room.

    So you're saying there is no waste in the Military? U.S Postal Service has always gone under numerous cuts by the way.

    This is true, but the Defense Department should be cut just like any other gov't dept., just less.

    you're assuming the cuts will get rid of the waste and not the necessities.
