    We'll agree to steeper cuts in social services in order to protect the military budget.

    You know it's true.

      Defense contractors have millions of low level employees and millions of subcontractors (I've been one). They also have contracts with Energy, Education, NIH, Transportation. I'm not expert enough to know how many ordinary people will be hurt by defense cuts, and of course I believe Defense should be cut, but unintended consequences.
