U.S. Defense Spending vs. Social Security

The United States spends more on defense than the next 13 countries combined.

Defense Spending

Romney wanted to increase our spending on the military.

Defense accounts for 20% of our federal spending, nearly as much as Social Security.

The damning thing is that our fatcats in congress now call Social Security an entitlement. It’s not an entitlement.

The government took my cash for the last 32 years. I paid the maximum social security tax every year. That was money I had earned. If I had been able to keep that and invest it myself, I would be fine now.

Instead I had to send it to the government.

This is not an entitlement. I once owned that money. I lent it to my government. Now my government wants to pilfer that money to subsidize tax rates for billionaires.
