Defense Dept. to reduce Army to pre-WWII levels

CNN: …The proposed cuts will probably draw sharp criticism from some members of Congress, especially those with large Army bases in their states and districts, or whose economies depend on building and servicing parts for the Air Force planes that will be eliminated.
In other words, this is what conservatives (among others) will be whining about next. reducing the Army to an actual peace time level for the first time in in nearly 75 years. They don’t want the pork barrel spending spree to end, because they’re such paragons of fiscal constraint.
