All the dire predictions on layoffs and mass service interuptions are BS. This is how you force them to tighten the belt. Provide same services for less money. This is the goal we all should want to see. I know our military can still kick ass with a few billion less here and there. They can trim the fat its just that it will be painful to do so. It's hard work but unless we force them they won't ever do it.
Hell liberals should be loving these mandatory cuts. Do you really need another tax raise so bad you would be willing to give up cutting the military. Something you have hammered on for yrs.
