Government cuts military budget -> Military has less money to spend -> Military reduces personnel -> Former military people need jobs, there are none -> Unemployment rate goes up -> Government spending goes up
And part 2 of that reduction in military spending...
Government cuts military budget -> Military has less money to spend -> Military buys less equipment -> Military supply contractors have less demand for product -> Military supply contractors lay off workers -> Unemployment goes up -> Government spending goes up

I suggest that we keep paying the people who are working and find a way to get the pople who are not working in a job. Cutting spending that results in less people working so that we can protect funding that goes into the pockets of people who are not working is just plain stupid.
New jobs + more people working = increased tax revenue
Cutting spending that results in less jobs = increased burden on social welfare programs
This isn't rocket science.

Consider this. If they cut military AND entitlement spending by 10% each, the military spending will be back to what it was before Obama took office and entitlement spending will still be 9% higher than it was before Obama took office.
Furthermore, Obama & Co. are proclaiming that as many as or more Americans are working now than when Obama took office. Why shouldn't entitlement spending be cut? It increased to handle the extra load of the high unemployment rate of the last 4 years. Now that those people are back to work why shouldn't spending in that area decline to what it was in 2008?

I disagree, all cuts do not have to cut jobs. lowering government pay, pensions, and benefits will not cut jobs. cutting non military payroll will not cut jobs, cutting UEC benefits will not cut jobs, cutting welfare will not cut jobs. we don't need to cut the workers from these groups just the people who are receiving benefits that do not need to.Jay Shrewsbury
