I have a fix, or at least a GIANT band-aid. Why not stop all NON-essentail military spending for 1 year? Instead of living on our children's credit line ... we do what the President is proposing that Wall Street CEOs do. Take a cut. Total requested Security/DoD/WoT spending is $738 billion, or 63% of total Discretionary spending. (Source: OMB,Mid-Session Review , Budget of the United States Government, Fiscal Year 2009 Table S-2.) Mexico and Canada are not poised at our borders for invasion....Our soldiers are the best in the world. Bring them home to defend OUR borders, halt production of Bombers and tanks...we have plenty. Use that $$ to stimulate the economy. Thoughts?
