To the extent that spending cuts are needed in the coming years, we should focus on areas different from those the Republicans have been targeting. Instead of gutting Social Security, Medicare, and other vital government programs, we can best reduce the deficit by bringing health care costs under control and by cutting our excessive defense budget. Fiscal discipline need not dismantle the programs and institutions that make America a great and humane society, or be achieved at the expense of our country's most vulnerable citizens.
