    I didn't see that coming:D, but anyways republicans are angry about the defense cut of 500 billion if I am correct but are find with cutting budget of middle class and poor, McCain went on CNN with another lady crying about it, we all know the real reason is to keep their defense contractors rich, what's your things should we cut the defense budget or not? Keep in my mind this is my first thread so correct me if something is wrong or if this thread already exists...

    Naw..it's basically on the money.

    Republicans say the government doesn't create jobs.

    Until you cut government money that creates jobs in their districts.

    :lol:

    Even if the cut goes through it is still more than the 2006 budget of 467 billion, in 2013 it will be 469 billion WITH the cut :clap2:

    I know the federal government has the constitutional responsibility to fund the military, but I did not know there was a budget for the middle class and poor. Which enumerated power is that?

    No it doesn't.

    The Constitution clearly outlines that the Navy be a permanent fixure..and the ground forces be subject to a vote every 2 years.

    Clearly not a mandate to fund.

    America already has the MOST PROGRESSIVE tax system in the western world...and we have nearly half the country not paying any federal income tax. Just how much more lopsided do you suppose it should be?
