.... and then somehow it's always an "investment."
Paul Ryan delivered on a doppelganger budget proposal that looks the polar opposite of what the president rolled out. Ryan cuts debt, doesn’t raise taxes, shrinks government and invests in defense rather than cutting it. There is so much work to be on defense from reinvesting in new capabilities, to recovering from the grind in Iraq and Afghanistan and preparing to meet future challenges that even Ryan’s investments won’t be enough to meet all the nation’s security needs.
Pretending that the Department of Defense isn't filled with waste, fraud, and abuse after decades of being sheltered from public scrutiny by the GOP is about as asinine as pretending there aren't efficiencies that can be found in K-12 education or our nation's colleges and universities after decades of being sheltered from public scrutiny by Democrats.
