That stupid FDR pushed for those pointless defense spending bills after Pearl Habor and ran up a debt close to twice the GDP. Democrats, go figure.

And Tip ONeal got the big dig. Do you need a history lesson? That was called a compromise between the speaker of the house and the President. Budgets and spending come out of the House. That is how it works.

Big dig vs. Reagan's massive defense spending ? Doesn't seem to me that you read at all.

Does that include the money spent on weapons that Reagan secretly traded with Iran without informing Congress ?

Probably so it had to be budgeted somewhere.

It was budgeted as defense spending and then misappropriated by Reagan in violation of the Boland Amendment. The money was not spent on weapons to be traded with the country that was involved in blowing 241 U.S. Marines to smithereens in Beruit.

If Reagan has massive defense spending then what does it mean that Obama has the highest constant dollars of military spending since WWII?
