Win the war lose everything else

Win the war lose the everything else

We currently spend more on defense than the next 13 countries combined. Defense spending accounts for about 30 percent of all federal spending — nearly as much as Social Security, or the combined spending for Medicare and Medicaid. The sheer size of the defense budget — $680 billion in the current fiscal year — suggests that it should be part of any serious effort to address America's long-term fiscal challenges.

Sequester is our savior

Sequester, finally we can put a cut to the unbelievable amount we spend on war, 72% of every income tax dollar goes to the pentagon, 72% of every income tax dollar. WOW what a waste of money.
The Sequestration is the best thing for America.
