DoD, veterans programs on the budget chopping block
Tuesday - 2/8/2011, 2:00pm EST
House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) has included a 2 percent increase in defense spending in his budget proposal. That's about $13 billion less than what the White House had requested.
Military Times reports that includes a 3 percent reduction in veterans and military construction programs - a 2 percent reduction from the President's request.
Compared to other areas of government, military and veterans programs would actually do fairly well under Ryan's plan. His overall proposal cuts as much as 18 percent from some agencies' budgets.
