The second biggest issue is an overbloated military that spends 10 times more than the second biggest military nation called russia. Clearly it is
much more than a defensive force and should be classified as the worlds biggest offensive force. People will lose their jobs and go on unemployment
and maybe even welfare. Oh well, good luck. You will probably have the same luck as a manufacturing employee who lost their job to some asian dude.
Get used to being miserable.
I don't believe its a ovrbloated Miltary between the Active componets and the Reservers and National Guards there are only 2,221,502 Military
But if you look at Federal employes which does not include the military there are 1.8 Million federal employess + 200,000 contracted employees and
this number does not include the state employees ,
Military Memebers average pay is between (Private(E1) to Staff Sergant (E6) is only $17611 t0 $34088 a year.
You look at federal employees their average pay is $120000
Just looking at this it make you wonder why they are cutting defence budgets but no there own.
The Sadest thing I have ever saw was a Private (E2) joined the military had a wife and two kids, becasue he could not find work, his pay was so little
that he was entiled to Foodstamps,and finacial aide so he could live in an apartment, do you really think this is fare......I don't, Congress and the
Senate need to look at themselfs first and cut there own office exspensise before they cut the military.
