Sequester Does NOT = Tax Cuts

Pro-war Republicans and even some Democrats are fear mongering Americans with talk of alleged "cuts" in military spending. Be assured that military spending is NOT about to decrease. 

This scare tactic is designed to head off sequestration, which only reduces automatic spending increases and only nibbles away at the massive increases proposed for the military budget. 

So, next time you hear Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh or Glen Beck crying about our poor neglected military not getting enough funding, remember that it is a smoke screen and that not a dime will actually be cut from the institutions responsible for a quarter of our national debt. The military industrial complex is alive and well... and coming to a neighborhood near you.
