It’s hypocrisy at its worst. House Republicans are pushing a budget resolution for 2011 to slash $100 billion for domestic spending while letting the bloated Pentagon budget grow.
Thankfully, some representatives are calling Republican leaders out by proposing amendments to cut military spending, including money for the war in Afghanistan. The vote is planned for Thursday, February 17th.
