Hypocrite Obama Demands Military Base Closures

Via Politico:

The Pentagon revived its politically radioactive proposal for a new round of base closures on Wednesday in a budget proposal the White House pitched as a compromise but which quickly reignited old battles with Congress.

The Department of Defense is requesting about $2.4 billion over the next five years for a round of base closures that would start in 2015, with the promise that consolidating the military’s “excess capacity” in real estate would pay dividends over the long term. The department is also asking Congress to slow the growth in personnel costs with a 1 percent pay raise to troops and increases in fees paid for some health care services.

me Republicans didn’t even wait for the formal rollout from Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel before rejecting the defense budget, especially the Base Realignment and Closure process, known as BRAC.
