resize the military budget first, then the others. but the sacred cow needs dehorning.
Military spending isn't really the problem. If you look at those charts as a percentage of GDP military spending always kinda flat, it's social security and Medicare that go from the lower left to the upper right. I mean it's fine if you want to downsize the military, but i don't think it's the problem.
