A $50billion dollar cut on a $720 billion budget, there is no way there isn’t AT LEAST 3-4x that much waste in every govt department, including defense.
I agree with you. I’m not convinced by the cuts shared by the media. I have yet to see anyone say what DOD spending was last year, and what it will be this year. Numbers are irrelevant without that context. Cuts are proclaimed in the context of baseline spending, and in the context of 10 year budgets which mean nothing to us normies.
