The New Congress, the Deficit and the Pentagon

Hosted by

In his farewell speech warning about the "military-industrial" complex, President (and former Army General) Dwight Eisenhower said that defense spending has to be weighed in the balance along with every other national program.  The new House majority wants to cut $100 billion from next year's budget, but the Pentagon won't be subject to major reductions.
