    ALOT of that is Retiree benefits and Cost-of-living allowances to take care of our troops. Trust me, we dont exactly use "state of the art" technology. Most of it is 5-10 years old or older

    How about we cut the EPA, NEA, PP.............Heaven forbid any of those liberal agencies...............better yet disband them.....
    We need to cut spending and raise taxes. We should be cutting spending within the military by getting rid of waste, not people. I hate to tell you it isn't Obama that is cutting personnel instead of waste when it comes to military spending. That would be those who get to decide military budgets, generally that would be people within the military brass or Congressmen.

    I have personally seen military waste that can't be fixed because pointing it out is useless because those who are doing it don't consider it wasteful. And it goes up to some pretty high people within certain commands. They refuse to believe they are wrong in their assessment of what is and is not wasteful.

    Actually a good bit of the military budget also goes to upgrading certain things, such as our aircraft, weapons systems, and warships. The new CVNs, supercarriers, have been in development for the last decade or so and they are still working on improving them. Some of these improvements are meant to improve efficiency of our carriers, including needing less crew. Of course, less crew needs mean less sailors needed in the Navy as well.

    While these upgrades are happening, it's due to the fact that we have about 1/3 of the ships that we had 20 years ago.

    Did you even read my post? I acknowledged that there is waste in all agencies of the Gov, but don't take it out on the backs of our active duty personnel or our vets......everythingthing Hussein Obama does is against the military.......Cost of living goes up and we don't get a cola for 3 years while employees in the WH get huge raises...Where is your outrage against them???? There is a call in the Hussein Obama administration to cut retirements in the military to 15 years or even do away with the present retirement system and let you retire after 20 years but you get no pension until age 60.........They also want to raise the premiums on tricare.........

    I am really surprised that you as a vet would take the Hussein Obama side on this issue....I would be willing to bet your husband would not agree with you on this one...........

    Make cuts, yes but not a trillion dollars........Even Panetta, Hussein Obama right hand man is against that..........

    I apologize for any missspelling but I am fighting the good fight against several Libs on various threads at the moment...........

    That is really all you people on the left care about is raising taxes when in fact we actually get more revenue by cutting them and cutting spending and downsizing government...........
