With near consensus from both sides of the aisle, congress just rubber-stamped a nearly three quarters of a trillion dollar spending plan for defense contractors. There is no limit on what we will spend on weapons, according to today’s guest Khury Peterson-Smith talking about his group’s report on a new $717 billion military budget for 2019. The Institute for Policy Studies report makes clear the priorities of spending taxpayer dollars on systems that actually serve to weaken America’s national security. There is no system of evaluation of performance and results. A new arms race,more than even the Pentagon wants,  is a highly questionable investment, serving to increase anger across the world by the victims of our bombs. What will it take to bring people out in the streets?
