Pay defenders of liberty more with savings from eliminating pork barrel spending

Porkopolis stronly agrees with Ben Stein's argument that:
...people in uniform should get more pay.
But Porkopolis strongly disagrees
...that upper-income people like me (and I am a welfare mother by Wall Street standards) should pay more tax...
is a solution. At least not until we have fully exhausted the elimination of wasteful pork barrel spending and outdated government programs as a revenue source.

Elimination of pork barrel spending alone would be an immediate source of revenue that can put directly into salaries for the people in uniform that protect us.
