With the Pentagon facing $46 billion in mandatory spending cuts, the White House may try to use the sequester to argue for deeper cuts in military programs it has long wanted to scale back. According to The New York Times, President Barack Obama will visit Capitol Hill Tuesday to push for a deficit reduction deal that would replace across-the-board cuts with more targeted ones.

On the president’s wish list, the Times reported, are base closings, further reductions in deployed nuclear weapons and weapons stockpiles, a restructuring of the military medical insurance program, and a scaling back of next-generation weapons programs, including the F-35 warplane.

How about we cut using a laser instead of cutting with a broadsword? There are things that the troops need for security that should not be touched.

There are no cuts but this is who they intend to screw. They tell ya that OMao cut $2T, but its this measly little reduction of automatic increases that is breaking the camels back.......The Fraud and misinformation is off the chart.

"Sequester cuts hit tuition for soldiers, aid for homeless veterans

They fought for their country, and now they're feeling the sting of sequester.

The $85 billion in cuts that went into effect at the beginning of the month will not spare soldiers and veterans, with a wave of cuts being announced for tuition assistance and a program that helps homeless veterans get back on their feet."

This shows his true colors. To take from people who have served is just wrong. They earned the help they need. IMO
