Rep. Buck McKeon, who heads the House Armed Services Committee is concerned about future cuts in military forces. He believes Democrats deliberately presented plans to reduce government costs that require huge reductions in money going to our armed forces. Buck believes Democrats are trying to pass the buck to Republicans by linking military expenditures to money going for health care, the unemployed and the poor.
I find his thinking shocking! Imagine a political party which would hold hostage important expenditures in order to force acceptance of their own ideas. My God, that sounds very familiar. I know, it is the Republicans who constantly link money for unemployed to cutting government services!
