The Real Story Of Military Spending

Kevin Zeese, Executive Director of  Prosperity Agenda, has written this article that beautifully sets forth the  position of the Pennsylvania Smart Security campaign (www.smartsecuritypa.org).  He points out that we spend much more on military bands each year than we do on public broadcasting, but it is the latter that is threatened.  A fighter jet in training uses as much fuel in an hour as an average motorist in two years, but spending on the jet is “off the table.”  Citizens who want to understand what’s happening to our budget and our debt, must read this article.
