The 2 situations are nothing alike.
Ron didn't want to cut the programs because people rely on them. They have to be eased out - you can't just take money away from people that put their hard-earned cash into the system.
The troops don't NEED to be in countries abroad. And you don't have to be a genius to realize that you don't need more military expenditures in order supply food. That's already in the overall budget.
I don't understand how people come up with these insane comparisons that are completely biased towards their side and yet fail the logic test right off the bat.
