Bernie is right, of course. Cuts can and should be made to our military budget. And that money should be used to help hurting Americans, who are still struggling to recover from the Bush recession. I would make a slight alteration to Bernie's statement though -- by replacing the word "judicious" with "significant". We don't just spend a little bit too much on our military -- we spend far too much, and we could cut that bloated budget in half without damaging our national defense.
