The cost of our industrial military complex is more than 22% of the federal budget. At a cost of 712 billion (according to CSBA Center for Strategic Budgetary Assessment numbers) America spends more on defense than the next 20 countries combined.The budget for those countries is about 525 billion.If anyone doesn't think 712 billion is to much throw in another 159 billion that comes from the 549 billion dollar discretionary budget. Back in the 1970's the stories of $700.00 toilet seats and $100.00 hammers wasn't to far off. If small business is out pacing big corporations in creating jobs they surely can make products much cheaper than the Lockheed Martin's, Northrop Grumman's Corps.,Raytheon's, etc...The industrial military complex is fraught with corruption and political payoffs. It's time to for America to give small businesses a boost and save money at the same time.
