What Sort Of A USMC Do You Want?

Today’s hearing before the Subcommittee on Defense of the House Committee on Appropriations will be very different than yesterday’s hearing before the House Armed Services Committee which focused on the force structure of the United States Marine Corps. The constant attrition of forces across the board is crazy in this world, and the GOP has to point this out in the context of massive expenditures on transfer payments. 70% of the federal budget is talking money from some taxpayers and giving money to other people in the form of transfer payments.

This is the heart of the 2014 campaign: The federal government has to stop scooping money out of the private sector and giving it to entitlements while not fully funding the core duty of the federal government: providing for the common defense.
