America currently spends $510 billion on defense. If we were to assume a straight-line decrease of 2%/year cumulative, that would look something like this:
- Year 1: $10.2 billion cut
- Year 2: $20.4 billion cut
- Year 3: $30.6 billion cut
- Year 4: $40.8 billion cut
But of course that will never happen... Corporate welfare queens, especially those in the defense industry would never let something like that get through. Remember, kids, we live in the age of the Military-Industrial complex!
