    there have already been some, by my read (defense budget was lower in 2012 than 2011, and lower for 2013 than 2012). But the main problem is that all the cuts, military and otherwise, will cause a significant amount of unemployment, and if the total package goes through, what will offset that? This may cut the deficit, but at what cost? Yes, the defense budget needs to be cut. One way to help solve that is to remove conflicts of interest from the decision process, in part by breaking up defense contractors (which is already happening to the company I work for and others, in addition to layoffs), and through real political leadership.
