Mainstream media, Washington and the Pentagon are crying the sky is falling. Even with the extra trillion in cuts, the spending will be at 2007 levels.
Meanwhile the US spends as much as the rest of the world combined on military operations. But America is falling apart as we build more subs, carriers, jets and military bases around the world and fight endless and new wars.
Cuts for the 99% like education, home aid, health, jobs, senior care, veterans' benefits, cities, states, roads, ports, bridges, tunnels, Wall St. oversight, pollution reduction, research, libraries, arts, museums, and more while war enriches the 1%.
