When throwing around a figure for Defense spending next year, $530 billion, the base Pentagon budget, is typically cited. But Chris Hellman and Mattea Kramer of the National Priorities Project hashed out a number for total national security related spending next year. They found out that it is closer to -- if not more than -- $1 trillion. Yet not only did Sen. John Cornyn and Rep. Buck McKeon say that the base budget will cause the sky to fall, but that it will harm economic growth. Weren't Republicans supposed to believe that the government didn't create jobs?
