Here’s how our nation’s military expenditures stack up against the rest of the world:
🇺🇸 $ 731.8B
🇨🇳 $ 261B
🇮🇳 $ 71.1B
🇷🇺 $ 65.1B
🇫🇷 $ 50.1B
🇩🇪 $ 49B
🇬🇧 $ 48.7B
🇯🇵 $ 47.6B
🇰🇷 $ 43.9B
Our bloated military budget is just a slush fund for endless wars. Let’s instead invest in our people.

The Biden administration should not be increasing our military budget right now. The top national security threat is the climate crisis. Instead of investing in more bombs and tanks, we need to be investing in clean energy.

56% of Americans support cutting the Pentagon budget by 10% to pay for fighting the pandemic and funding education, health care, housing.
That includes 69% of Ds and 51% of Rs.
Congress should reject Biden’s Pentagon spending hike.
