    Hypocracy? or Just the way it needs to be?

    The super committee failed, triggering agreed upon cuts in both Military and Domestic budgets...as accepted by both sides of the aisle. Now, it seems one side has decided to fight against the military cuts, all the while claiming they are serious about deficits. They deny the opinions of most economist, that to address our deficit we will need new revenues.

    By avoiding cuts to the military, and fighting to keep the 1% taxes the lowest in many years...while accepting the other cuts (which effect the 99%), are they not attacking the middle and lowe classes?

    "This is pure bait and switch. I’m sorry they don’t like the deal they cooked up to get out of the debt-ceiling mess they created. I’m not a big fan either. But the trigger was structured as tough on defense to make it something they’d want to avoid. And let’s remember: the $900 billion of cuts already on the books came exclusively from the non-defense part of the budget from important programs that are already strained—Head Start, child care, education, infrastructure, R&D, and more"

    Let the cuts go through without change.
    Let the tax cuts expire as scheduled.

    I wouldn't mind if they cut certain military funding if my efforts to go to college and earn a degree to help better our family with a future solid career wasn't on the cutting block along with it.

    They need to weigh out the immediate effects of their decisions - in their blind haste they're really ****ing a lot of people over in ways that aren't deserved.
