I agree the military needs operational funds. But stop there. A pay raise is substantial. Stop there. We need to stop starting little wars or invading anyone who farts. We need to build our own infrastructure. How many wars did we really need to be in? I am in favor of a strong military but not multi billionaire company’s feeding off the American tax dollar. I worked for a company that tested military equipment. Air Force, Army and Navy came to them because they did not have to wine and dine any individual to get an honest answer of the piece equipment they were thinking of purchasing. This is the way it should be not Congress paying back corporations for aiding in their campaign funds or innocent gifts. We need to put the major portion of the military funds into our infrastructure, schools and healthcare and mental healthcare.
