    •  We don't have anything close to 5000 bases (0+ / 0-)
      •  We aren't losing 170 million jobs either... (0+ / 0-)

        But even though Maxine Waters misspoke, it doesn't mean we have lots of jobs at risk.  We may not have 5,000 bases, but we do have way too many bases.   My policy would be a 50% military spending cut, phased in over 10 years so people in places like COS would have time to retrain and resettle, and redeploy savings into infrastructure, education, urban rehabilitation, R&D investment in science and technology.

        You against that policy to save jobs in the Springs?
