  •  The sequester cuts all programs evenly (0+ / 0-)

    The Pentagon budget is far too large. Agreed.

    Pentagon spending can be reduced to zero. Don't know if we disagree or not but I am working towards a point.

    Assuming the USA has a legitimate need for some defense spending, then we can agree some of the Pentagon's programs are worth funding.

    The issue with the sequester is the fat gets cut by the same percent as the worthwhile programs. It is not smart to cut the important programs. It is smart to cut out the fat.

    The sequester's value is in putting pressure on Congress to get off it's ass and do its job. in order to maximize this pressure, PBO is pointing out how the military cuts are affecting the GOP's beloved base concerns.
