The 112th Congress includes many new members elected on a promise
to close the nation’s unsustainable deficits. Spending does not
equate to results, even when it comes to military spending. That
was the message of Grover Norquist, head of Americans for Tax
Reform at a recent Cato Institute Capitol Hill briefing on January
19, 2011. He argues that there is a strong conservative case to be
made for cutting military spending sooner rather than later.
