GOP plan boosts Pentagon, cuts social programs - BusinessWeek - http://www.businessweek.com/ap...
"A key House committee has voted to cut food aid, health care and social services like Meals on Wheels to protect the Pentagon from a crippling wave of budget cuts come January. The cuts approved by the Republican-controlled panel total more than $300 billion over the coming decade. They are but a fraction of the cuts called for in the broader, nonbinding budget plan that passed the House in March and are aimed at preventing the Pentagon from absorbing a 10 percent, $55 billion automatic budget cut in January that's the result of the failure of last year's deficit "supercommittee" to reach a deal." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
