Increased spending for the Department of Defense is way too generous. While the Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, and Airmen, could use a proper pay raise, most of the DOD spending is filled with rampant waste and abuse. Our service men and women need to have the weapons and ammunition to conduct their jobs, but we have a huge surplus of these weapons of war to kill every man, woman, or child on this planet , several times over. We need to cut back the excessive spending on National Defense and use that money to fix our crumbling infrastructure. It could also serve to help educate our children with the best education that money could buy. When we spend money for quality education, we are spending wisely for the future leaders of The United States of America. We need to stop funding the military industrial complex and have a more sensible funding program that will cover our National Defense objectives.
