Leave it but remove our troops from foreign hostile conflicts that are not threatening our countrys safety

 @93ZQDBJ from California answered…2yrs2Y

Cut out wasteful spending and/or use wasteful spending to increase salaries of military workers.

 @93V5N7M from Maryland answered…2yrs2Y

Decrease, also remove the ability for representatives to have financial interests in the laws they pass laws about

 @924MYCK from GU answered…2yrs2Y

Decrease, current spending should be adjusted by reducing wasteful spending to ensure the budget is spent more wisely. Also, some of the budget should be reallocated towards those that need more funding, such as social programs, education, healthcare, etc.

Decrease, and perform audits of military spending to identify fraud, waste & abuse of tax-payers dollars

 @8TMFV7P from Georgia answered…2yrs2Y

 @938PWY6 from Kansas answered…2yrs2Y

Military spending increase or decrease is irrelevant. Spending needs to be more accountably efficient, subject to more IG staff for different aspects of the military, but the VA in particular.

 @8ZSR5NL from GU answered…2yrs2Y

Increase to maintain a strong national defense, and/or if there is a problem that we need to respond to ongoing conflicts/emergency situations. But current spending should be adjusted by reducing wasteful spending to ensure the budget is spent more wisely, and provide our troops with better pay and benefits.

 @9334YP3answered…2yrs2Y

Military expenditure should instead be used to arm and train every citizen.

 @9323M4S from Idaho answered…2yrs2Y

Eliminating corruption in the military industrial complex will make spending more efficient.

 @92S34SB from California answered…2yrs2Y

Neither, I am satisfied with the current amount of spending, but decrease the Pentagon budget in half. The budget for the Pentagon is called defense spending while the budget for the military is called military spending. This is why they are different and this is my opinion.

 @92TGGX9 from Wisconsin answered…2yrs2Y

If they even it out like spend some on military and then spend some on the environment

 @92T6YGG from Kentucky answered…2yrs2Y

I think that the government should just leave the same price we use.

 @92P9ZPN from Missouri answered…2yrs2Y

 @92MDVFR from Georgia answered…2yrs2Y

Stabilize military spending and audit the current budget more meticulously. Bribery and kickbacks notoriously infiltrate military spending.

 @92JTPJR from Minnesota answered…2yrs2Y

Increase certain branches at a time when it seems necessary. If they have what they need to operate, perfect.

Decrease, and optimize that fund towards healthcare and other helpful resources for communities and such.

  @MSelvig from Wyoming answered…2yrs2Y

Military Spending should be scrutinized for waste and abuse, then adjusted accordingly.

 @8ZSR5NL from GU answered…2yrs2Y

Increase to maintain a strong national defense, and if there is a problem that we need to respond to ongoing conflicts/emergency situations. But current spending should be adjusted by eliminating wasteful spending to ensure the budget is spent more efficiently and appropriately, and provide troops with better pay and benefits.

Increase to maintain a strong national defense, but current budget should be adjusted by reducing wasteful spending to make it more efficient, and some of the money should be reallocated towards social programs, education, and healthcare.

Neither, I believe we shouldn't fight for who holds the most global power.

 @9229SCK from California answered…2yrs2Y

The spending on the Military should be lowered by a certain percentage in order to have enough money for the people.

  Deletedanswered…2yrs2Y

Increase to maintain a strong national defense, but current budget should be adjusted by reducing wasteful spending as well as wasteful and outdated programs, and some of the money should be reallocated towards social programs, education and healthcare.

Increase Decrease Increase, but only after our deficit is drastically reduced

Increase when necessary to maintain strong national defense, but current budget should be adjusted by eliminating wasteful spending as well as wasteful projects, and cutting most foreign bases and operations in order to reduce our presence from other nations.

 @heatherdvdprincessanswered…2yrs2Y

Increase, and better prioritize mental health. Often, military members' psychiatrists are told not to diagnose them with conditions they have, because then the government would be required to pay to help them with the disorder, and the budget isn't big enough for that.
