Romney: we should cut the social safety net

This is an interesting statement by Romney:

‘‘We have two courses we can follow: One is to follow in the pathway of Europe, to shrink our military smaller and smaller to pay for our social needs,’’ Romney said outside the city’s Veterans Memorial Center and Museum. ‘‘The other is to commit to preserve America as the strongest military in the world, second to none, with no comparable power anywhere in the world.’’

He doesn’t say this explicitly but, since he says he wants to cut taxes and lower the deficit, he is implicitly saying he wants to cut payments for ‘social needs’, that would be welfare, schools, healthcare–the whole safety net. Of course, he’s not going to come right out and say that–he doesn’t have any political courage.
