    ...and people should actually look at whogets military pensions and how muchthey get before opposing changes on a go forward basis. I hope someone has the guts to cut DoD deep and wide. Sure, salaries and benefits should come last, no reneging on past agreements, but I see senior level Marines retiring after 20 years with a 6 figure  pension only to do the same work as a private contractor for even more money.  

    I prefer a single equitable national social insurance (health and pension) for all Americans.

    Let all Bush tax cuts expire and , bring on the Sequestration cuts to defense.
