The Central Role of Reductions in Military Spending in Making Rational Cuts in the Deficit

Barney Frank, Congressman from Massachusetts, a ranking member of the House Financial Services Committee, is a leader in Congress in bipartisan efforts to scale back Americas worldwide military commitments. For decades, the subject of military expenditures has been glaringly absent from public debate. The Pentagon budget is more than all other discretionary spending programs combined. If we do not make substantial cuts, we will incur substantial damage to our economy and reduce our quality of life. Rebuilding our economy and creating jobs remains our nations top priority. Congressman Frank will discuss the issue of excessive military spending in order to ensure prosperity in the future.
