Javal:

I stand corrected, apparently I was remembering that the Air Force's budget was cut, not the overall DoD.  As usual, it depends upon how you spin things as well. I had read stores like this and made some assumptions that weren't true:

Frankly, if I were in charge I would just cut the F-22 out of the budget completely (heresy, I know on multiple counts) and give some of the money to the Park Service.

Regardless, I think my second paragraph was my real point, government can't continue to spend the way we are and expect this country to compete economically with India and China in the future.
