When people hear "Defense spending or budget"
they immediately think "military"
people as usual thanks our political propaganda do not
understand what it means.
The "military spending"
is just a small part of the overall "Defense spending"
So cutting the defense no necessarily means Cutting the military
it means leaving hundreds of thousand of people without jobs within the
"defense budget spending"
while the real spending of tax income goes to finance and support the many 40 and more foreign countries that US
support within the Defense budget.
Actually while within the Defense budget taxes pay for creation of jobs
the money stays within the economy, but the spending oversea is tax
that never comes back to the US economy.
So all those trillions of dollars spends on war financed by that part of the pie chart that goes to Defense is waste and abuse
Leaving people without employment in the US doesn't fit the problem it only adds to the growing welfare state, where more taxes are needed to support
services but no tax is generated.
The government is not cutting the military per say actually is increasing the spending until 2017, and so the budget for the 40 something countries
that US support, but what is cutting is part of the defense budget that support employment in the US
Defense Budget Cuts Would Limit Raises and Close Bases
$100 billion cut in defense spending could eliminate 1 million jobs, including 750K in private sector
Now this is the bombshell, while Americans will lose jobs and the economy will lose taxable income foreign policies will keep growing within the
defense budget, this tax money is none refundable is income lost
Ready, Aim, Foreign Policy, Section 1206 of the Defense Department spending keeps growing yearly.
How the Pentagon’s role in foreign policy is growing, and why Congress—and the American public—should be worried
