IMHO, it is a terrible idea.
For instance (since this is in the Military forum) if Bush decided to use 400 bliion on the military (like he did this year) then Democrats could
decide how it's used.
So they would take 350 billion dollars of "military peace keeping missions in cooperation with the UN" instead of using it to build up our
technological base and numbers of arms. Then when Dems are in office, they hate the military, so they give it 30 billion, and the republicans can do
virtually nothing with it.
It would become partisan politics x a million.
