Fighting for a U.S. federal budget that prioritizes peace, economic security and shared prosperity
In fiscal year 2015, Pentagon and related spending will total $598 billion, accounting for 54 percent of all federal discretionary spending. That's roughly the size of the next seven largest military budgets around the world, combined.
Out of twelve major federal spending categories, only the military and veteran's benefits would be spared from the Trump cuts.
By 2023, the final year included in President Trump's budget request, military spending would make up 65 percent of the federal discretionary budget, compared to 54 percent in 2018.
The president's priorities are clear: ever-increasing funds for the Pentagon, nuclear weapons and Homeland Security, and massive cuts to almost everything else.
