I've made the point numerous times on the board that there are painful decisions ahead. Everything is going to be squeezed big time by medical costs of the aged (even after cutting the DoD in half).

That said, nobody has responded to the 185% growth in Fed spending while population has only grown 20% (and defense spending was a larger proportion back in 1990).
