Congress is on track for an eye-popping increase in military spending.

Put another way, with a $700 billion military budget, the U.S. would be spending more than three times as much as China on its military, and 10 times as much as Russia. According to SIPRI, the U.S. already accounts for more than a third of all military spending.

It’s amazing that when it comes to paying for things like education, we don’t have the money, but military spending? Snap a finger and we’ve got all the money in the world, and then some!
