The country has to do some belt-tightening. And by “the country” I mean FedGov spending.
Great way to do it, exempt entitlements (including Medicaid, Social Security, Food Stamps, TANF, Section 8 housing) but cause tremendous harm to a Constitutional enterprise - the military.
Perhaps the Republican party deserves the internal split that it is about to endure. Good thing it is embracing amnesty for illegals. Now, there's something we can afford. As it alienates the military permanently, it will need new constituencies. Somehow though, I think the illegals will still vote for Democrats.
