Unemployment and Military Budget--both up
Unemployment has reached 9.2 Percent. So what did the Congress do? The House increased the military budget by 17 billion. The AP story cites "Concerns about undermining national security, cutting military dollars at a time of war, and losing defense jobs." "National Security" has become a take-out term that is meant to stop all debate. Our nation, states, and cities are more threatened by police and fire layoffs than by the Taliban.
