I support increasing pay for our soldiers. The fact that so many military families need food assistance tells you how pitiful their pay is!! However I am concerned about where the money will come from for these huge increases! During past years increased spending had to be offset by decreases elsewhere in the budget. Gutting social support services won't be enough to finance this military increase, building "the wall" and big infrastructure improvements that we also desperately need. WHERE is the money coming from??? Maybe we could take a lesson from corporations and foundations that solicit donations and indicate the source of such donations. we could name more aircraft carriers after billionaires who pick up the cost or put plaques on the side of planes etc. that have the millionaires donors listed. we certainly don't have the money to pay for all of this!!!
