'Panetta: US ground forces would be cut by 100,000' - title

Don't get me wrong.

This stinks.

But I have a question...

we lost over 14,000 able bodied men & women in the service to 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell'. (Source, Service Members Legal Defense)

To the tune of $1.3 billion of your tax dollars. (Source? Patrick J. Murphy, former congressmen of PA)

Why are we so concerned about the effects of budget cuts to the military...

**'Senate Republicans Block Defense Bill, 'Don't Ask Don't Tell' Repeal' - By MATTHEW JAFFE and DEVIN DWYER - ABC News - 09/21/10

when the Republican Senate voted against the ENTIRE Defense bill, rather than allow openly gay service members...

in September, 2010?

That will certainly have some serious bad effects on the employment figures.
