So says the conservative Heritage Foundation, which is headed by former Republican senator Jim DeMint. Congress should increase the FY 2016 defense budget to $584 billion.
The military is “degraded” and “needs to be rebuilt.” Gee, I wonder why. Heritage says it because of all the defense “cuts” under Obama. I say it is because of fighting the senseless foreign wars. But what do I know compared to Diem Nguyen Salmon, Senior Policy Analyst for Defense Budgeting. Her name sounds, and she looks Vietnamese. Does she not realize the evil that the DOD did to her country? The Heritage Foundation is the best friend the Department of Defense ever had. This means that the organization is an enemy of freedom no matter what it says about free markets and limited government.
