    US Defense Spending $1000 BILLION in 2012

    US Defense Spending $1000 BILLION in 2012. It was $354 billion in 2001.

    Why does defense spending need to go up 3x in 10 years?

    Some tired looking broad, Blackburn, appeared day after the president's SOTU address saying essentially that defense spending should not be touched that everything else should be cut.

    The US spends more than the NEXT 10 top defense spending countries combined!!!!!!

    THE US cannot afford defense welfare.

    Defense budget needs to be cut to $500 billion and future increases limited to ACTUAL tax revenue.

    We cannot afford these LAVISH defense pensions that can be up to 50% of final pay.
