    They work for the defense lobby. What would you expect them to do?

    Budgets don't matter.

    Harry Reid has already announced he will shirk his Constitutional duty to pass a budget resolution, thereby continuing to permit our nation to run rudderless and sticking our grandchildren with trillions of sovereign debt.

    One is the Constitutional duty of the Federal gubmint, the other is a responsibility of local and state concerns.

    Read up on it.

    Defense is ACTUALLY an enumerated power and responsibility of the Federal Government, food aid and other listed programs are local Government concerns and have no authority for federal programs. As for Federal retirement? They are planning to cut military retirement I believe other federal workers should get cuts too especially congressional personnel.
