  • Lunch with Heritage Online Chat on Defense Cuts - LIVE NOW

    The debt ceiling deal that was passed by the House and Senate contained very dangerous cuts to the military. They could prepositionally cut a trillion dollars over the next 10 years. This is coming at a time when the military is already stretched thin. Click here to join our “Lunch with Heritage” chat We are joined by Heritage expert James Carafano and he is taking your questions about what the cuts mean for national security and the readiness of the military.

      Talented engineers and other technical experts are leaving defense industry jobs in droves before the inevitable lay-offs occur. We are in a sad situation indeed. Of course, the only realistic solution is a regime change in Nov.2012. The current administration appears more intent upon their Cloward -Pevin disastrous extension of the welfare state rather than the nation's security.

      Retirement pay for the military should begin at the same age as the Social Security Program. I feel it is not fair for someone to receive retirement pay for 20 years of military service upon leaving the military, no other company has such an early age to retire.

      discard the F-35, build more F-22

      Turning swords into plow shears Congress needs to provide tax credit incentives to States which invest in veterans, defense contractors and support groups. States who build back manufacturing, rebuild their energy grids, rebuild thier interstate highways and bridges should be encouraged. How can Mr Carafano help structure the future?

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
