10. You know, if we actually cut the Pentagon budget by like...
I don't know, 20-30% we could pay down our debt, pay for Social Security, UHC, and other Social Programs, and increase NASA's budget more than enough to pay for ALL their missions. Even then, we would still outspend the other top 10 military budgets in the world, COMBINED. We are certifiably insane!
