Keeping the Abrams production line rolling protects businesses and good paying jobs in congressional districts where the tank's many suppliers are located.


This is why government spending will never be decreased in any meaningful way. Millions of jobs tied to military spending.

Millions tied to taxes and tax law.

Millions tied to providing support for government services.

There isn't enough demand in the private sector to pick up the slack because technology has made business much more efficient than it was in the past, meaning less demand for workers.

Cutting spending is a surefire way to increase unemployment and decrease your chances of re-election.

The entrenchment of politicians is more and more disconcerting.

I also do not like the way our country puts political families on pedestals. Bushes, Kennedys. Should not be. There should be no such thing as a political family in my opinion.

Hit the nail on the head. That is why it is so easy to campaign on this type of spending but nothing ever gets done no matter who controls government

That is a good point but the voters usually are the ones who create such dynasties

Straight ticket helps maintain dynasties and a false sense of security.

As long as we have the capability of ramping up production IF the need ever arose, I'm fine with cutting it. But this is Chuck Hagel we're talking about.

About as bad as Clinton's SecDef.

Obama will back up a step and just draw another line in the sand. Kinda like the UN.

We built an entire war time manufacturing industry in a very short period of time during WWII. If the need ever truly arises, we could do the same again.
