Barney Frank: Cut Military Spending by Following Cato Plan

U.S. Representative Barney Frank (D‐​Massachusetts) believes that cutting the military means rethinking the purpose of our military. He argues that the far‐​flung adventures that have killed thousands of American soldiers and consumed trillions of dollars simply haven’t been justified by U.S. defense needs. He also takes issue with President Obama exempting military spending from his so‐​called “spending freeze” proposed earlier this year. He spoke at the Cato Institute November 19, 2010.
