Starve Americans to Feed the Military?
Republicans want to cut foor aid for the poor, so that the military does not face budget cuts. Under the agreement that created the Budget Super Committee, across the board budget cuts were to be made if the committee could not reach agreement. The committee did not reach agreement, and now the Republicans are trying to go back on it and change the rules. They want the cuts to food programs to the poor to be increased, so the military will not face cuts. The US military accounts for half of all miilitary spending in the world. We will spend over $700 billion this year. The country with the second highest military spending is China, which will spend about $110 billion.
To keep the military fat, the citizens must go hungry
Can this really be America?
