Liberals vs. defense spending

Washington Post:

Defense cuts pose quandry for liberals

They got the cuts they have always wanted but they recognize that it is hurting economic growth.  Many of the cuts were misguided reducing the development of weapons systems needed for the next war and also not replacing equipment like aircraft that are older their their pilots.

I have been arguing ever since the stimulus bill that defense spending generates more for the economy than funding state and local government spending.  We now have statistical data to support that.   It is not the first time liberals have been wrong about spending priorities.
