Why Congress Shouldn't Be Afraid To Cut Defense Spending

Share

If the United States is serious about cutting the federal budget, then it must get serious about cutting defense spending.

The United States spends about $750 billion a year in military expenditures, on top of more than $1 trillion spent on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. This huge number dwarfs the amount spent on defense by any other country, and it represents a significant portion of our federal budget. There is no responsible way to slash the federal budget without a serious review of defense spending.
