Eisenhower was one of the greatest presidents of the 20th century and then some. He knew that out of control military spending could bankrupt a country. We need to cut it 50 billion a year as the Bowles/Simpson act requested. Since we spend more than all of the other democracies combined, it seems like the thing to do. A military industrial complex is a bad thing. Have to like Ike to keep thinking like this. He knew cut spending and increase revenue is only intelligent way to deal with debt.
