Those are union jobs, why would you care??
You didn't care when your party was willing to let the American Auto Industry go out of business??
The auto business sells to consumers.
The defense industry has only one customer. The Government.
You complain about over paid people?? Wages in the defense industry are among the highest.
The defense industry is a drag on the overall economy, wasting resources.
Cuts in defense spending effect more than just the military. Lots of cities depend on the military for their economies. I don't see any "right whiners" advocating military spending cuts. The problem with you "left whiners" is that you tend to forget just where "right whiners" want cuts to happen.
