Ryan is as bad as Boehner was.
What a novel idea! Maybe we should figure out where we are wasting billions and billions of dollars before we start spending billions and billions more. I know it’s a crazy notion, but maybe we should give it a shot. I mean it’s only our money right?
How Washington REALLY “works.”
Eh, no big deal. What could 2 billion dollars worth of arms in the Middle East do anyway?
Go to it auditors. Let’s see what’s in that mess. I mean, it sounds like even the Pentagon doesn’t know. (In fact we are almost sure that the Pentagon doesn’t have a real grasp on costs. They haven’t had to have a grasp because Republicans (and Dems too – but Dems tend to think wasting the taxpayer’s money isn’t such a big deal) have always given the military piles and piles of money.
Audit and then cut.
Good luck David Norquist. Audit that Pentagon. The place is a fiscally target rich environment.
Audit the Fed and audit the Pentagon.
We need to be cutting everywhere and there are billions and billions which should be cut from the Pentagon budget.
Not that astonishing to us. But it is still nuts.
Why do conservatives always fall for the defense spending bit? We should be cutting agencies AND the Pentagon, not expanding the Pentagon.
Conservatives want lower taxes right? Smaller government? Well, the military is BIG government, and often deeply crony to boot.
Necessary? Yes. But at current levels? No.
