Ms. Stein, no pacifist here, would spend about $284 Billion a fiscal year on The DoD, alone. And, she said nothing about the budgets of the NSA, CIA, FBI, Homeland Security, etc. As for Sen. Sanders, he’s said that a 15% DoD cut was, " doable ". Which is about $84 Billion and, unless Bernie is ready to " get the monkeys off our back " is not trying hard enough here on the Alphabets, either. My point is that until we create a buyer’s market for the actual laborers, instead of sellers market for labor needed, we can’t put enough pressure on the PTB to recreate a vibrant middle class. Hillary is selling " fear of loss " economics and Bernie and Jill must come up with a " hope for gain " economics. And, that means cutting into the bone of the MIC, PIC, the Tax Code and the Big Medicine Boys. Willie Sutton robbed banks because that’s where the money was. Bernie and Jill need to walk the walk here, methinks.
