Military not exempt from spending cuts: Republicans:

U.S. military programs will not necessarily be exempt from sharp spending cuts Republicans in the House of Representatives plan to put forward in coming months, incoming House Republican Leader Eric Cantor said on Tuesday.

House Republicans have previously said defense and domestic security programs would be exempt from their efforts to trim $100 billion from the U.S. budget.

But speaking on the day before his party takes control of the House, Cantor did not rule out defense cuts. “Everything is going to have to be on the table,” he told reporters.

    I’ll agree to a 10% defense cut in exchange for a 20% cut in health care spending. Any Democrats up for that deal?
