Military Gets Billions For Wars Americans Don't Want To Fight

Why is the military budget growing so fast? Are they already preparing the next war? The military budget has more than doubled since 2000. What can we do to stop the military industrial complex from expanding to obscene proportions?

Thom Hartmann takes a call from someone who is outraged by military spending. Thom also points out that half of the bloated budget goes to private contractors.

The Thom Hartmann Program covers diverse topics including immigration reform, government intrusion, privacy, foreign policy, and domestic issues. More people listen to or watch the TH program than any other progressive talk show in the world! Join them.

The Thom Hartmann Program is on Free Speech TV every weekday from 12-3pm EST.
