How about spending money on job training for those troops to prepare them for the real world and gut the defense budget-You Republicans want spending cuts? Well here is where they should be coming from. Not from Medicare or Social Security.

$633 billion is an amazing number. So while Europe and our allies continue to cut defense so they can move spending to other areas, we are the only idiots who continue to defense(spend) our way to oblivion.

We could probably live with a defense budget 1/5 of that number yearly. That, plus the tax increases for the wealthy, could go a long long way towards moving us out of deficits.

And our President doesn't have the necessary courage to tackle this issue. Depressing.
