From here:

GOP continues push for more defense spending - News - Stripes

Notice there is no plan on actually paying for it all......

Apparently deficits don't matter when it comes to the military industrial complex that the GOP supports.

Military spending is actually enumerated in the Constitution. Someone has to pay for Barack's illegal wars.

Actually both sides are claiming that the military force that exceeds the next 10 nations is decimated, who can get by on juts a few trillion a year.

Praise God!! It is sickening what has happened to our Military and National Defense. We are now at 1940's level of spending as far as percentages go. That is what our federal government is supposed to do.
Funny how liberals never worry how to pay for ANYTHING until it comes to Defense spending. Here's how you pay for it CUT EVERYTHING ELSE!

Good--with rising Islamic terror and an increasingly aggressive China, this is what we need.

To be fair......we are going to have to spend an ungodly amount if Obama would get what he wants.

Obama's War Authorization Limits Ground Forces - Bloomberg View

The peace president isn't so peaceful either.

I do not mind spending more now on the military, as long as the military is given a specific goal on our wartime goals and then do it without the politicians getting in the way.

the politicians in dc are nothing more than arm chair QB's.
