    Now, I, personally, am an interventionist. But arming Syrian rebels with money we cut from Social Security is a bridge too far for me.

    And thirdly, even if I were to concede that arming Syrian rebels were not a stupid, ill-conceived, terrible idea, it still doesn't land above Social Security on the financial priority list.
