This is excessive, bloated and primarily funds exorbitant expenditures on military equipment that is now being transferred to police departments for use against American citizenry. We need to find defense, certainly, but not offense and empire building. We do not need to enrich the likes of Dick Cheney, Halliburton, the Koch Bros., Lockheed, etc. Soldiers deserve a pay raise and that should be a top priority in the bill. The bulk of the increase in this bill should be spent to support America and her people- especially restoring the middle class who shore up both the wealthy and the poor. We need quality healthcare, huge investments in infrastructure and tax breaks for the 99%! This bill is obscene and an insult to American values.
