And btw the proposed Defense Cuts are just bring us back into FY10 Budget baseline and getting rid of the supplement funding for Iraq/Afghanistan Operations .
The defense budget has been going down and will continue to go down under Obama. We have contracts on hold right now just waiting to see who wins the election. If Obama wins, these contracts will not be signed and half the people who work here will become jobless.
