The Military

Roughly 15% of federal expenditures and over half of discretionary spending is for national defense (excludes veterans services and benefits). This percentage is definitely high enough to consider significant spending cuts. Although we should try to reform military spending to maximize savings, we should not neglect asking how much the U.S. military should be doing abroad and how many new weapons are actually needed to keep America safe. We should not be buying every weapon that has new bells and whistles. However, we should make sure veterans are getting the mental and physical care that they need.
