Given that Republicans are constantly telling us that old people are bankrupting America, you would think that they might think $125 billion would be worth saving. The truth appears in the con argument, if money can be saved by cutting benefits to ordinary citizens then Republicans cannot wait to throw them to the wolves. If money can be saved by allowing the DOD to choose to save money then NO EMERGENCY! Can someone give the elected idiots a reality check? Citizens who pay into Social Security are NOT the problem. An out of control defense budget is--especially when the pockets of Members are being filled by lobbyists for the defense industry.
