I read he's making these cuts to increase military spending with out raising the deficit. And he knows there's going to be an outcry. Also found that they they think these cuts will rearrange priorities. He wants to get the costs of drugs down. I don't know what to make of it. Fox is too busy talking about the 38 million in taxes he paid in 2005. Thanks Rachel Maddow.
