Why The Warfare State Budget Is Way Bigger Than You Think—-$1.2542 Trillion Big

Summary:
There are at least 10 separate pots of money dedicated to fighting wars, preparing for yet more wars, and dealing with the consequences of wars already fought. So the next time a president, a general, a secretary of defense, or a hawkish member of Congress insists that the U.S. military is woefully underfunded, think twice. A careful look at U.S. defense expenditures offers a healthy corrective to such wildly inaccurate claims. https://davidstockmanscontracorner.com/?p=315409&preview_id=315409&preview_nonce=e27a6c8107&preview=true
