Look at this:
Since President bush (41) did his 5 years military cut, spending there has been between about 15% to 20%. This is already severely cut from the cold war era and earlier. Now I think it's inexcusable that the Department of human Health and Human services has doubled since Reagan's time. Look at the Department of Treasury as well. Why has it increased so much since the 60's?
It isn't military spending we need to reduce. We nee a plan to turn tax recipients into tax payer. That most likely means disassemble of these stupid free trade agreements Clinton signed. make imports cost more than they do today, so manufacturing returns here.
