America has sent Washington a loud and clear message: all government spending is on the table. In response to that - the President and Congress agreed to a series of cuts in military spending. Over the last three years those cuts equal $465 billion. These cuts are going to force our military to cut wasteful spending, find efficiencies and do more with less – all while we are at war.
In that same budget deal - the President signed into law $1.2 trillion in cuts to our military and veterans. Now, because the super committee in congress is unwilling to find reductions elsewhere in government spending – the budget is going to be balanced on the backs of our soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines.
