This freeze will require painful cuts. Already, we have frozen the salaries of hardworking federal employees for the next two years. I’ve proposed cuts to things I care deeply about, like community action programs. The Secretary of Defense has also agreed to cut tens of billions of dollars in spending that he and his generals believe our military can do without.All while we're fighting a War on Terror, excuse me an "Overseas Contingency Operation?" Sorry, Obama, and to those in the Tea Party who say the military should make cuts. Defense is one of the main Constitutional duties of our government, not creating phony "green jobs," not funding a failed Department of Education, not some government health insurance program.
I'm sorry for our men and women in uniform that this empty suit cares more about community organizers than those who sacrifice time from their families, and their lives, to keep us free.
