Senate approves $700 billion military budget
All this talk about there not being enough money for social programs is a blatant lie. The Senate just approved a $700 billion military budget, with most Democrats voting for it. (Note those who did not vote for it in the link, including Sanders.) But will we hear any of those who complain about the cost of social programs complain about this cost? Of course not. This budget is even more than warhawk Dump asked for, an $80 billion increase. Just the increase alone would pay for free public college for everyone. And we do not need this sort of military budget to maintain our military prowess; it's just to feed the contractors who pay off Congress. Do not listen to what Congresspeople say; their laws tell us just who the are and where their bread is buttered.
