  •  Some of these cuts just aren't credible (3+ / 0-)

    For example, the %60B savings by "reforming" military health care. Basically, its a cost shifting shell game. In the report, they want to deny military retirees access to health care if they have a full time job with an employer that offers health care benefits.

    In actuality, they should be planning for an explosion of health care costs for war veterans as the long term health issues come home to roost.

    •  Yeah, but the rest of it is credible. (0+ / 0-)

      I agree on the military health care business, but the rest of the cuts are entirely credible.

      -5.63, -8.10. Learn about Duverger's Law.
