One of you will end up here next!
Did you include how much is spent per month on the 2 wars?
'The whole universe is going to die!'
No, because I think we should double the spending in both categories. It's just cloth/paper and ink.
Yes... but that doesnt mean the funds for them come out od the defense budget.I am 100% sure that at least some roadways are used for transportation purposes by the military, and I'm fairly sure that the various defense contractors use them as well.
Historical Budget Data
The $2288.8B entitlement figures include:
Soc Sec, Medicare, Medicade, unemployment compensation, Supplemental Security Income, the refundable portion of the earned income and child tax credits, Food Stamps, family support, child nutrition, foster care, and miscallaneous government retirement programs not otherwise specified.
All defense spending, includng supplemental wartime spending bills, totalled $655.5BThe defense budget, off budget spending, GWOT, homeland security and army core of engineers cost about $741 billion.
My figures are accurate.I would support a spending plan that cut every single one of the programs I just mentioned, but that doesn't excuse your inaccurate figures.
