    US House Passes Record Military Budget, More Than Trump Request

    Published 16 July 2017 (22 hours 24 minutes ago)


    The bill passed with a resounding vote from the House with 344 in support and 81 against from 117 Democrats and all but 8 Republicans.

    The U.S. government passed the National Defense Authorization Act Friday, setting a record of US$696 billion in military spending, more than President Donald Trump asked for.

    The bill passed with a resounding vote from the house of representatives with 344 in support and 81 against from 117 Democrats and all but 8 Republicans. The bill allows for a bulk up of the military with more ships, aircraft and troops.

    Trump’s initial budget requested US$603 billion. However, house members generously gave an extra almost US$100 billion as a first step towards the military’s revamping.

    You can easily get agreement between a pig and a cow that wolves are bad, but they can easily fall into the trap where the pig says
    wolves should eat more beef, while the cow recommends a diet of pork.

    No surprise there...it's a well-established pattern: billions for defense, nothing for the homeland.

    Do people think this is anything different from what Obomber did for 8 years? Unlimited defense increases, record military aid to Israel. Same old, same old. This is nothing new or different, just a different group dutifully serving the needs of their masters on Wall St. and in the MIC.
