The Cato Institute On Military Spending

Filed under: 25% solution, New Priorities — Tags: , , , — Walter Ebmeyer @ 7:13 am

The Cato Institute is a conservative think tank that, like Ron Paul below, we don’t often quote.  But on the subject of military spending we agree to a great extent.  It is this convergence of thinking beteen the left and the right that makes us optimistic about the chances of really taking a large bite out of “defense” spending.

  1. I don’t agree with their statement that the money saved should “be returned to the taxpayers.” I think the money saved should be re-allocated to met the very dire (i.e., the layoffs in Camden) human needs of the citizens of this country. While the Pentagon gorges on bloated weapons and waste, the people are starving.

  2. I couldn’t agree more. I’d much rather spend the money in Camden than in Kabul.
