Thanks for that.
I must disagree with you a bit on Sen Graham. He has been one of the few to attempt to stop the terrible affect of military budget cuts and what they are doing to our military. Very few Republicans, in the House or the Senate, are doing that.
Now, it is the Republicans, who to use their own words, want to "bake in" the Sequester, which every single economist and budget analyst says makes the Dept of Defense suffer the most.
I am disgusted by the behavior of our Republican "leadership" who is willing to cause further harm to our national defense, while they have subtracted not one dime from entitlements, the real cause of our exploding debt and deficits.
Entitlements were exempt from Sequestration.
The men and women of the US military have done more for this nation than any other segment of the population. Moreover, in the last 12 years, these people have been deployed again, and again, and again - while America went to Pizza Hut and Forever 21.
I appreciate you and your post and wish that Sen Graham for all his good points was a consistent and reliable conservative, but he isn’t. We all need to work on our character and our commitment to doing the right thing for the right reasons.
