While the GOP continues its campaign to reduce the federal deficit by taking dollars from retirees, kids, and students, it refuses to even look at Pentagon spending. One area that should be addressed is the budget plan to spend over $700 billion on nuclear weapons over the next decade. Essentially, Pentagon planners intend to double the nation’s nuclear capabilities over the next tens years. The U.S. already has enough fire power to eradicate every human on the face of the earth. Given the current state of our economy this is an insane use of the nation’s scarce revenues.
