Due to inflation, the US defense industry requires an increase in the military budget

22

The Aerospace Industries Association and the US Defense Trade Group sent a letter to the leaders of the Congressional Appropriations Committees and the Armed Services. It says that due to inflation, the US defense industry is demanding an increase in the military budget. The same budget, which already exceeds 800 billion dollars.


This was reported in Defense News magazine.

Defense and aerospace companies are proposing to legislators to change the size of the military budget in such a way that its increase outstrips inflation by 3-5 percent. They are urging congressmen to make appropriate decisions before the start of the next fiscal year, that is, before September 30th. Arms manufacturers say the United States will demonstrate “resolve in the face of Russian and Chinese aggression.”


US President Joe Biden has requested $2023 billion for national defense in fiscal year 813. This is eight percent higher than last year's request and 4 percent more than the amount approved by Congress. With inflation in the United States rising above eight percent for the first time in 40 years, Undersecretary of Defense Kathleen Hicks and other Pentagon officials have acknowledged that the military may need more money than it has been given. So, you have to disperse the printing press again.

However, the amount Biden initially requested, which he intends to allocate for defense, is already a record for the entire history U.S.A. Many congressmen have already expressed their dissatisfaction with such extravagance. But the military-industrial lobby is unlikely to pay attention to this discontent.

    The next step will be the requirement of the US military-industrial complex to increase the budget due to famine in Africa. And there you look, and they will get to the Martians ...

      Somehow there was a story about the US Navy, which demanded additional funding for the purchase of electric vehicles in the light of the struggle for an environmentally friendly future, and I wondered who would be next in line for the US state budget after Ukraine, the Pentagon, the military-industrial complex, the United States Small Business Association, the Navy USA and the local National Guard.
      Well, the queue has replenished with new suffering.
      We are waiting for the next.

        Where are they from 30 tril. External debt. The Americans themselves will soon tear them apart for such tricks. They probably have a printing press blushing with shame .. smile

        HEY Biden why are you petty, rounded the budget for defense to one trillion. Is it possible that paper and ink for the printing press have also become in short supply due to the Russian sanctions?

          Up to three. If you don't mess around. And from three trillion, at least two hundred, at least three hundred billion can be allocated to Ukraine - it will "master" everything.

            It’s interesting to read about the USA now .. Usually inflation and DEFAULT are in Russia, etc. ..And then all of a sudden, inflation began abruptly in the US and EU, and who is to blame?
            How nice it is to read this .. In Russia, of course, life is not sugar, but somehow everything is going more or less steadily ..

      So everything goes to the fact that later it will be too late ... It will not be profitable to cut paper, as long as there is something to cut, you need to have time, otherwise they will die in poverty.

    A favorite technique of propagandists, "and they beat blacks" when shelling of the country's territory has become commonplace in our country, and no longer single, but long-term.
    ⚡️Governor of the Belgorod region Vyacheslav Gladkov said that the shelling of the village of Zhuravlevka from Ukraine continues all day long, there are victims.

      Well, yes, in the USSR there was a propaganda trick "and they beat blacks", and now it has begun to sound like "and we are shelling Zhuravlevka." In fact, the same thing, the same technology - to translate to another topic .. I would still understand if the topic of shelling of the Armed Forces of Russia on Russian territory was never raised and hushed up in the VO. Well, no, that's what it says here.
      And so it turns out a meaningless comparison of round with soft.

    Of course it needs to be increased. 800 lard is ridiculous, you can't get past Putin. and fuel has risen in price, and for the Pentagon too.
    We must already jump the trillionth bar, otherwise there is no hypersound, and the Excalburs cannot be thrown up.

    These Americans are stupid. I.d.i.o.t.s are finished. If Russia or China had such a budget, North and South America would have been cleared of the United States and similar entities long ago. And they still have little money - degenerates.
    I will say this, the result of the "lack" is getting closer and closer.
