The lower house of Congress approved the US military budget for 2017 g


To support the allies in Europe, as promised by Obama, $ 3,4 billion is allocated. The text of the bill states that these funds will go "to a significant expansion of the military presence in Europe, including the deployment of additional US forces there and sending equipment there brigade.

The legislators have not forgotten about military assistance to Ukraine in case of armed aggression from the outside. However, this time the volume of emergency aid is reduced by $ 100 million (150 million against the current 250-ti).

“According to the text, the Minister of Defense, in coordination with the state secretary, has the right to send this money to supply the Ukrainian army. This includes, in particular, the so-called lethal weapon, including armor-piercing weapons, mortars, grenade launchers, light weapons, as well as ammunition. At the same time, this article is not mandatory for execution, ”explains the agency.

The White House has already stated that they don’t like the bill - there are too many reservations and restrictions. If a document in this form lies on the president’s table, then advisers will recommend Obama to veto it.

      602 billion is a lot of money! You can feed Ukraine and Belarus for about 10 years ... I immediately recall Anton Palych Chekhov:"If in the first act of the play there is a gun on the wall, then in the last act it must certainly fire."

        "602 billion is a lot of money!" ////

        Their army is paid. And they pay a lot in it.
        If you look at the budget sections - most
        goes to salaries of military personnel and pensions to officers.
        Maintenance of the fleet, aviation, bases - the second most expensive section.
        There is not much left to buy weapons.

    To date, the size of the US foreign debt reaches $ 18,9 trillion. Nobody has more than foreign debt, and such grandmothers are dumped into the defense budget. They have saved all countries from paying debts.

    No matter how badly he treated the USA, but here they can be respected!
    First, they brought out a rascal in Europe, then they convinced them about military bases, determined how much and to whom to plant something in the Middle East, and here is the finished result - The real amount for the budget. Approved!
    Not like our "Handshake" ministers. In addition to forecasts and great speeches that we will begin to live well only from 2020, and very well from 2030 - not heard and not seen!
    The country’s budget for 2016 and they began to adjust (less than half a year has passed).
    IMHO!

      Honestly, I set the plus sign for the second part ..... In addition to forecasts and great speeches that we will begin to live well only in 2020, and very well in 2030, it is inaudible and not visible! ....
      Really offensive. At first, socialism, then developed, now Siluanov is talking about economic growth. Looking disgusting. Every day I have to listen to how bad it is in Ukraine and, in comparison, how WE HAVE A HEALTH. I personally don’t care how much more paper they saw. I see how many of us have only SOUND-educated bribe-governors and ranks a little lower. For three pieces - the budget of Namibia. How much is the tank, you say? Ah, it’s like ... To platoon, please let me know.

    If you have 18.5 (and already probably more) trillions of government debt (not counting corporate debt), you need to have a BIG defense budget. So that no one even thought of trying to RETURN these debts. As in childhood, if a high school student "borrowed" money from you - how to go to him to demand it back?
    Just go to another high school friend you know. And on our small planet, there seem to be two "high school students" left.

    All the same, they don’t have enough money.

    Comrade Patriots, have you ever seen the US budget? For example, the federal budget in 2016. amounted to about 4 trillion. dollars! Four trillion!
    600 billion dollars for defense a lot? A little $ 933 billion in Social Security to master? And $ 954 billion for Medicaid and Medicare, plus $ 114 billion for the alternative program Other Health Care? Yes, for some food stamps under the Food and Nutrition Assistance program, $ 108 billion in 2016. mortgaged. 108 billion for free food loafers! These are 10!, Ten atomic aircraft carriers such as J. Ford!
    Do you know how much it takes to support the "poor"?
    Food stamps 108 billion
    Welfare programs 260 billion
    Unemployment benefits 43 billion
    Preferential housing 51 billion

    Needless to say, the military nervously smokes in the corner?

    The joke is that, they get the same numbers by the end of the financial year, as the Fed deficit. the budget. Thus, the question arises: at whose expense is this banquet?
    At the expense of the rest of the world, which plows (in the broad sense) - in exchange for their green candy wrappers, supplying raw materials and other resources of their own. Not a bad job, right?
    Maybe this is why some heads of state are trying to rebel against the next "partnership", after the stupid and careless dictum of the obamki "America should determine the rules, and all other countries should follow them ... What do you think?

      The fact that Ukraine is sawing does not matter!
      The Americans have such candy wrappers, more than enough! Their price is not more than a wrapper for Petyunin sweets. Size and value appears only when you have to give in kind.
      Everything is like old. When the Inca ribbons and glass were changed to gold.

        If you have some (at least 100,000) of such worthless green papers,
        which are about to lose their value,
        we’ll make a mutually beneficial barter - I’m ready to exchange it for wrappers for Poroshenko candies.
        One dollar for one wrapper? wink fellow

    Infa is common, each country has its own military budget. The United States consistently spends a lot, including on "peace" in their understanding.
    The question is different. What the hell to minus the article? Did the author accept the budget? He only talks about him.
    This also applies to other information materials that are posted here. Some of the readers seem to break feelings on the material, since they cannot reach the culprits.
