    Or just the logical fall out of the sequester stupidity.  It had to be known to everyone that the weakest and the least connected would always be the ones to suffer the cuts.

    Let every citizen submit a list of the top ten things they would cut from the defense budget, and we'll see what rises to the top of that list. Something tells me it wouldn't be college tuition for kids of fallen combat vets.

      ridiculous idea up, based on some stupid notion that something like this "worked" thirty years ago, in the Reagan Administration, so it would work today.  

      My question is:  Where have these folks been for the last almost five years? Jeeeezzzz!!!!

      And yes, it is the logical "fall out" of the sequester.

      Please, let's all work together to get this repealed.  That way, no one should have to suffer. ;-)
