Bernie Sanders' Great American Budget Blueprint

We live in a country that needs to focus and align its priorities to represent what the people want --- NOT THE #BILLIONAIRES, who tend to be profiteering war mongers.

A majority of the people do not want this kind of crony-defense industry spending that leaves little money for the care of veterans returning home from endless wars!

The United States currently spends more on "defense" than all other nations combined -- about four times more than China.

The American voters are saying #EnoughIsEnough to 40 years of  "establishment politics as usual" that ignores the needs of the people to focus on the needs of big banks, big-pharma, the industrialized defense industry and foreign-labor manufacturing.... the big-campaign donors.  

Military spending is important to most nations, with each country spending to its own need and ability. ---- Canada spends 6.3 percent of its total yearly GDP on military spending. 

The United States spends 19.3 percent of its GDP on military expenses. 

Mexico uses 3.3 percent of its GDP for military spending.

Germany spends only 1.2% of its GDP (Gross Domestic Product) on military. 

No country worldwide comes close to matching the United States in military expenditure. In 2014, US military spending reached $571 billion, a huge distance ahead of second placed China’s $129.4 billion. 

China just announced (Sept. 3, 2015) cuts to its military. President Xi Jinping of China announced that he will reduce the country’s military personnel by 300,000, using a parade marking 70 years since the end of World War II to present the People’s Liberation Army as a force for peace and regional stability. The Chinese military has more than two million members, The New York Times reported. LINK
