Spending for Defense resumed upward to new height’s under the Trump admin and Republicans….
Both parties will not in the mood to make cuts now….
The economy is mushy….
Defense cuts would cut jobs….
The US is about to reengage around the world after Trump turned in ward…
The next Defense Budget IS NOT appreciably bigger than Trump last one….
But Democrats , who hold the steering power in both houses of Congress are not inclined to make major cuts in the Pentagon’s spending money….
Added to this is Biden’s ‘Rescue/Stimulus’ recent law and his looking forward to an Infrastructure Bill push…The Biden admin is looking to add jobs….Not make cuts for much of any reason…
Against the above…
One could see a few billion here and few billion there sent over other programs more helpful for the nations social programs….But a 10% across the board cut just Ian’t gonna happen….
