So do we spend tens of millions to maintain a military base as an economic development project or because there is a legitimate military need? If the military truly does not need the services available at a given facility, should the tax payers be asked to keep it open just to maintain jobs? If the the employees are doing work that is unnecessary just so the government can provide them a paycheck, how is that any different from welfare?
