Cut Defense spending is half till they can account for what they already get. This corruption needs to end:

  • the Pentagon only managed to account for 39 percent of its $3.5 trillion in assets
  • in 2019 alone, the Pentagon made $35 trillion in accounting adjustments – a figure larger than the entire US economy. (annual budget is less then $1 trillion, so for every dollar they received the made $35 "accounting adjustments". That screams fraud and corruption).
