President Barack Obama unveiled a $37 billion budget blueprint that calls for $640 million in military construction projects at installations in Texas, including $315 million for Army and Air Force projects at Fort Sam Houston, Lackland AFB and Randolph AFB in San Antonio.The amount of Pentagon-proposed military projects in the state is far below the $1.1 billion sought last year, but represents the end of a building boom created by the 2005 base closure process and the transfer of Army troops from overseas installations to Fort Bliss and Fort Hood.

The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
EVERYTHING gets cut, not just districts and demographics that didn't vote for you.
We can’t have military bases when there are all those great GM union workers who need bonuses.
All I ask is that he make one trip to Dallas. The sooner the better!
Is there anything new this communists jackass would do?
“All I ask is that he make one trip to Dallas. The sooner the better!”
Dallas would embrace him and his Liberal policies. Plus the Communists and Islamofacists have been told by Soros to check their American hatred until the next Republican President is in office.
Yeah but does it actually call for a concrete cap to be placed on Crawford?
He's been screwing people out of money to the tune of hundreds of millions, if not billions of dollars for over two years now. The GM and Chrysler bond and stock holders, Toyota, etc. The list is a long one. Lots of people with means in high places have beefs with Obama. I would imagine the threat level is pretty high right about now. I can only imagine what it must be like to be on his Secret Service detail.
That’s a two-fer fo 0bama. He doesn’t like the military or Texas.
0dumbo is such a marxist and is hell bent on the destruction of the USA.
And this, after the lunacy of “Joint Base San Antonio”. Suure, start something stupid, get everybody in a tizzy, then pulling the rug out from under the entire process.
obozo is at it again.
Told you he’d go after the Military and the Old first!
Although some construction at Military bases need reviewed as to whether they are needed. Millington Navy base remodeled a Commissary that didn’t need it, and paved the parking lot that didn’t need it. The re-pavement could have waited at least another 5 years or more. Neither were damaged in the May flood of 2010.
The Fuhrer wants more funds for his private vacations at the expense of our military and our security. Smell to you? Smells like an open sewer to me.
