So close some bases, fire some soldiers, that makes supply and procurment go down a bit. Cut NASA? Cut services to vets? Cut homeland security? How far do you liberals want to go?
I know I would rather pay tax to have a strong military over entitlements for welfare and medicare.
How about when we pay tax you check either military or domestic for where you want your money to go?
I'd cut by 40% the weapons procurement and cost over runs. We don't need new generation weapons system to fight the Terrorist as if they consist of conventional armies like N. Korea or Russia. You can use 20th century weaponary to fight the Taliban and Alqueda.
The MIC and weapons procurements industry cuts would save tax payers hundred of billion of dollars annually.
