of entitement reform.... In looking through recent debate transcritps and campaign statements, this is the first real hint that a candidate is really looking at our entitlement spending with an aim to do something about it.Our country was not prepared for our current situation. We took a holiday from history in the 90’s. We cut our military, our procurement and our research and development. Now our military is stretched too thin. We are wearing out our equipment. Our intelligence capabilities are inadequate. To reverse this situation we must reassess our national priorities and face the truth about what it will take to defend this country. Demographics and increasing medical costs are going to cause the growth of our entitlement programs to squeeze out discretionary spending, including our defense budget. America is going to have to come together for an honest bipartisan discussion about this. Because anyone who honestly looks at the situation knows that the current trend cannot be sustained. So remember when we’re talking about fiscal policy we’re also talking about the military and national defense.(link added)
Now if we can just gets some specifics.
