Why has the GOP grown the Military-Industrial Complex but slashed Human Security?

Now, imagine $1 in change and let’s allocate it proportionately for all of the discretionary spending, according to Trump’s proposed 2019 federal budget. Nearly 74 cents of this dollar goes to a mother lode of defense spending, including the Department of Defense, weapons, wars, Homeland Security, 800 military bases in foreign countries, and needed veterans’ services.

The rest – 26 cents – must pay for all our remaining human and community security programs. One cent goes for food and agriculture; a few pennies each, for diplomacy, environment, education, energy and transportation; and roughly a nickel each for housing, health and education.
