When we have ended wars, why is stability for the Pentagon a good deal? "Defense" is a major driver of debt, and I assume people who like this deal are okay with their schools, retirements, etc. going into wars and gadgets. I am not surprised that Senator Murray of Washington state went for this - let's see if our senators think guns before butter is the way to go.

Is this what you call "thank a vet"? Save some real money and cut all of the representatives and senators benefits.

"Defense" is a major driver of debt, --------So is massive entitlements, Dept of Education that duplicates what the State and local departments do, and now Obamacare, adding 2.7 Trillion in just the next 10 years.

I am sure our children will thank us when they are saddled with unending debt and a 70 percent tax rate. So much for prosperity for our children. Glad to leave the world a better place for them, oh that's right, they just get the bill. Rock on!
