Will the plans to reduce debt include military spending?

If not, then it’ll be more play-acting, just like the budget negotiations, when they magically reached an agreement right before the deadline. And nothing of substance was actually done.

    Bingo. A lot of the budget isn’t spending in social programs, it’s spending on wars and military. Even with the hard-right budget, which deeply cut social programs, it would have taken decades to come close to a balanced budget. It’s not the programs, it’s the military (which, btw, got yet another increase in it’s spending in this budget…)
