The reactions to Gates' spending plans
from DoD Buzz
The reactions to Defense Sec. Robert Gates' proposed budget cuts came in fast and furious following his announcement of which programs will get the axe and which would thrive in the coming years. As expected, they were a mixed bag, with Sen. Carl Levin and certain think tanks may that have influenced his moves were gushing, while House Republicans went on the attack, slamming wartime defense cuts. Carl Levin, chair of the Senate Armed Services Committee came out in support of Gates, especially his move to cancel the Marine Corps' beleaguered Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle.
