Teeing up what could be a politically explosive fight before the midterm elections in November, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel on Monday will recommend billions of dollars in annual budget cuts that would reduce housing allowances and other benefits, increase health-care premiums, and limit pay raises, CBS News confirms.

There's two things that are the most important in the U.S. which cannot waiver.
1) The military industrial complex
2) The big banks and businesses
To keep those two happy they'll gladly rip off the citizens and make their lives a living hell.

Yup, and there's the faux outrage.
Military suggests cuts, people jump up in the air, worried that American's military will fol overnight if we don't continue spending 50% of GDP in the thing.
The military NEEDS reduction if you are to save your own country. It's gotten ridiculous.
The defense industry is what pays for most of social engineering programs.
