Does anyone have handy the percentage of our GDP that goes toward military spending?



And does that include medical costs, prostheses, etc.??

1. someone did post a graph

but this I do know - Medical costs come under the VA budget, not the Dept. of Defense. It is kept separate intentionally.

4. 40% is probably relative to the federal budget

or perhaps of discretionary spending
