1. This is the GOP's blatant attempt to keep pork barrel military spending
By blocking the one guy who might actually make meaningful cuts to the fraud, waste, and outdated ways of thinking about America's defense needs. Of course there is no guarantees Hagel would have any real impact.
But with Pugs lining up to block him it is very apparent that they are concerned Hagel's bringing an ax and their pet projects & bases may be in his line of sight.
The American public is waking up and sick of politicians that are complete hypocrites. Politicians who make no qualms about lying to protect the special interests that grease their palms.....
Hopefully true change is possible. Hopefully America understands that the cost of out military adventurism is breaking the back of the very nation it is suppose to be protecting.
