We could cut our defense spending in half and STILL spend more than anyone else. Raise taxes if you want to spend more, not cut vital services fir the sick, elderly,poor and veterans. It's not like you are gonna use a penny of the increase to improve the lives of the common line unit servicemember. You are still going to pay them poverty wages, while gleefully cutting the SNAP benefits they count on to feed their children. Screw that.
