The New York Times has come up with a calculator where you can pretend to be Congress and “make” cuts to the military budget as part of a deficit reduction package. See how you do with their interactive tool.
The Pentagon has committed to $450 billion in reduced spending over the next 10 years, but may have to come up with a total of $1 trillion in cuts if Congress follows through with deeper reductions. Make your own plan to reduce the budget by choosing some of the most common, interesting or provocative cuts that have been proposed by various parties.
