725 BILLION DOLLARS! How is this being paid for? We need to stop having these bloated over inflated budgets without sayiing where this money is coming from. The American people need to know whether this is on credit and will have to be paid back in the future or whether it can is money our country already has and what that leaves the American people left with to provide for veterans healthcare active duty and retired or separated through the Veterans Affairs Administrative office. Then, what is left in our budget for non-military citizens for their healthcare? What about a room in the budget for infrastructure repair and replacement, what about upgrading our electrical grid. What about our future, we need a recycling and sequestration program for separating materials that can be reused for specific purposes vs materials that are harmful to humans or our environment and have a need for containing them in such a manner that they never find their way into our food chain on land or in the oceans. What about money for the real education of our children and the retraining of our adult populations for the jobs in our future?
I could continue to think of non military uses of a part of that grand sum, but I think you get the picture that $725 billion dollars for military uses is way too much! Especially if that is money we are only hoping to have in the future!
