    cuts with infrastructure spending.  If we did that cuts to the defense budget are not savings you think they will be.  If we don't do that then we just put thousands, if not millions, of middle class people out of work.  

    Like it or not our military spending is the largest jobs program we have right now.  Just slashing it without replacing it with some other infrastructure/jobs program will hurt many in the middle class.
