from Judson Phillips, the Tennessee lawyer who heads Tea Party Nation, a far-right pressure group, objecting to prospective defense cuts proposed by the Obama administration:
"If we decided to build a couple of new carriers, thousands of workers would be hired for the shipyards. Thousands of employees would be hired for the steel mills that would provide the steel for the hull and various sub contractors would hire thousands. Do you know what that means?It means they would receive paychecks and go out and spend that money.
"That would help a recovery. That is a shovel ready project! Increasing spending for the military does a couple of things. It not only stimulates the economy, it protects our nation."
