    Yep, because ANY budget cuts to defense will leave us defenseless

    As for "liberals" like me, I served for 20 years in the Army. How about you?

    I selected the percentage of GDP route because it makes it so much harder for people like you to lie. Not impossible. Clearly because you still boldly did so.

    Hmmm looks like we should cut the military by 25% according to the chart and that might help pay down those bills.

    A good start would be closing down a few European bases,then take a look at the the hundreds of billions of dollars we spend on aircraft like the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter,Which cost about $137 million a bird.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Why? After the new session begins, the Senate will pass a new middle class tax cut and send it to the House for approval.

    Yes and the house Gop will whine like babies. Honestly until the Republican Party severs it ties to the teabaggers they will have these problems. They have done nothing for this country and never will.

    When you put liberals in quotation marks, I took that to be mocking sarcasm...Was I wrong?
