Romney has pledged to cut so many taxes that the federal governments income would get cut in half. The federal government's income already only covers half of the federal government's spending. He has promised to support the military in the same speech he has promised to eliminate the only possible source of that support.
Not that Romney has given me any reason to believe anything he says.
