Any cuts to the military can’t be a good thing.

Pentagon leaders are drafting a plan to cut education, healthcare and housing benefits in an effort to get Congress to end the sequester.
The fiscal 2015 budget is the first spending plan offered by the Pentagon that takes sequestration cuts into account.
By proposing spending cuts to the sensitive benefits programs, the Pentagon is gambling it can convince lawmakers to change the sequester.
Under sequestration, the Pentagon is staring down $500 billion in mandatory spending cuts. The cuts began in March and would reduce Pentagon spending by $52 billion next year.
The strategy under review by the Pentagon offers a multi-year plan to ramp down benefit levels, rather than single-year fixes to military compensation programs, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey said during a national security symposium in California.
