WASHINGTON — Defense Secretary Robert Gates released a $534 billion budget proposal Monday that would shift money from programs plagued by cost overruns to weapons and systems needed to fight wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
The budget proposal, Gates said, "profoundly reforms how this department does business" in defense acquisition. It seeks to balance the needs of troops in combat while modernizing for future threats, he said....

Some programs would grow under the budget proposal, which is up from $515 billion in the current year.
america spends more money per year on its defense budget than the next 25 countries COMBINED.

dont let the republisheep trick you into thinking obama is slashing DoD spending.
