Watchwoman: There is nothing in the U.S. Constitution about the federal government administering “social justice,” which is often the central theme of the Obama Administration. What is in the U.S. Constitution is defense! That is what the federal government should be lawfully concerned with and obligated to ensure. So what’s Obama cutting, the Defense Budget! Once again proving his inability to govern lawfully. ▬ Donna Calvin
President Barack Obama’s administration sought a nine percent cut in the 2013 budget compared with last year’s request by retiring older ships and planes and pulling back two brigades from Europe. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, offering a budget request preview, said he was seeking to reduce the number of active US Army soldiers from 570,000 in 2010 to 490,000 by 2017. The Marines would be cut from 202,000 to 182,000.
