Decrease, current spending should be adjusted by reducing wasteful spending to ensure the budget is spent more wisely. Also, some of the budget should be reallocated towards those that need more funding, such as social programs, education, healthcare, etc.

Military spending increase or decrease is irrelevant. Spending needs to be more accountably efficient, subject to more IG staff for different aspects of the military, but the VA in particular.

@8ZSR5NL from GU answered…8mos

Increase to maintain a strong national defense, and/or if there is a problem that we need to respond to ongoing conflicts/emergency situations. But current spending should be adjusted by reducing wasteful spending to ensure the budget is spent more wisely, and provide our troops with better pay and benefits.

Eliminating corruption in the military industrial complex will make spending more efficient.

@92S34SB from California answered…9mos

Neither, I am satisfied with the current amount of spending, but decrease the Pentagon budget in half. The budget for the Pentagon is called defense spending while the budget for the military is called military spending. This is why they are different and this is my opinion.

Stabilize military spending and audit the current budget more meticulously. Bribery and kickbacks notoriously infiltrate military spending.

Military Spending should be scrutinized for waste and abuse, then adjusted accordingly.

Neither, I believe we shouldn't fight for who holds the most global power.

@9229SCK from California answered…10mos

The spending on the Military should be lowered by a certain percentage in order to have enough money for the people.

Increase Decrease Increase, but only after our deficit is drastically reduced

Increase when necessary to maintain strong national defense, but current budget should be adjusted by eliminating wasteful spending as well as wasteful projects, and cutting most foreign bases and operations in order to reduce our presence from other nations.

Increase, and better prioritize mental health. Often, military members' psychiatrists are told not to diagnose them with conditions they have, because then the government would be required to pay to help them with the disorder, and the budget isn't big enough for that.

Decrease, but only for what the military deems useless and unnecessary.

 @RickStewart from Iowa answered…11mos

The government exists to protect our borders, not fight foreign wars. When we limit our military to that task, we will be able to reduce their budget. It should always be high enough so that our military can effectively protect us from foreign actors who wish to do us harm.

@8Z4TXWG from Wisconsin answered…12mos

They should spend enough to keep military maintained and strong but no more unless war is a possibility.
