Is this what fiscal responsibility looks like?

Even IF the proposal is capable of cutting the deficit in half, my guess is that claim is being made under the assumption that we don't have another September 11th and that we don't get involved in any more ridiculous, unnecessary wars (to say nothing of potential necessary wars).

I don't know the details of the plan to increase co-pays for veterans, but it doesn't sound too awful if it really is targeted at veterans with higher incomes (i.e. people who can afford it). Still, I find it interesting that the administration is always so quick to praise the military, and equally quick to piss off both current members of the military as well as veterans.
