I do not care about the border implications of this defense spending bill. I do care that our defense budget has been bloated too much. Cutting defense spending in half and reestablishing the methods defense contracts are conducted would provide armed forces with a realistic budget. The current system is wasteful and unnecessary. The USA does not need to spend as much as we do on our military when the next five nations combined (most are allies) don’t even come close to our level of spending on defense.
Please attempt to provide the pentagon with an appropriate sized budget, instead of the current blank check method.
