Gates to cut defense spending

Defense Secretary Robert Gates has announced cuts in defense spending, including cutting some forces from Germany.  So far he's taking small nibbles, but at least this is finally a beginning. 

U.S. defense spending has risen every year since 2001.  It's time for it to go back down now so we can stop denying health care to our own citizens.
