Getting a lot of mileage out of a Heritage conference about which I already have written here, now this is my last installment.
One particularly scary passage:
Heritage has produced a proposed budget/policy design that reaches a balanced budget and that “fully funds defense at 4 percent of GDP” (rather than heading well below 3 percent, as we are in the process of doing). The U.S. has served as the world’s “safety net” – not its policeman, but its ultimate guarantor of geopolitical stability – but “if we take the safety net off the table… that’s not okay…. It would mean that World War III is coming.”
