Eisenhower Warned About the Military Industrial Complex

Veteran's Benefits are not military spending.
Nuclear Bombs are in the Energy Department Budget.
Spy satellites are in the NASA Budget.
State Department hiring mercenaries is in the Government Budget.
Department of Homeland Security and Coast Guard are in the Government Budget.
Treasury Department pays pensions to military retirees and widows and their families.
Interest on borrowing for past Military Spending is not part of the Military Budget.
When everything is included, the $1.4 Trillion on Military Spending exceeds what America gets from Individual Income Tax!
