Let's consider that for a minute. The AEI published a chart that I think is very telling with regards to sequestration. It's one thing to measure budget increases (or cuts) in relationship to previous years' budgets - even as an inflation-adjusted amount. But if one looks at this graph which compares defense spending and entitlement program spending as a percentage of GDP, it does provide a different perspective:
Truthfully, there is likely some waste and duplication within the defense budget that could be trimmed. But a broad-brush cut like sequestration is not the means to achieve this. Furthermore, we continue to just kick the can down the road regarding entitlement spending. One of those lines above tracks up as our deficits and national debt has. Stop blaming the other one.
