Treading a thin line here... I wouldn't really call the military's salary/benefits a "handout," since some of them do happen to give the ultimate sacrifice. Sure, they volunteered for it, but I think it's a bit of a stretch to compare their salary to a welfare program.

I would have to agree, the question has been asked a few times now, and they all just seem to ignore it. And LOL at OldArmy saying a flat tax would work... I'm not too educated on tax policy and tax code, and even I can see how that would completely fail. One of the worst comments I've seen in here recently...
