Re: Military defense budget
Having worked for the Dept of Defense and Dept of Army as an operational auditor. Congress CAN overload the budget when accross the board increases are given OR accross the board cuts. I have seen while auditing more waste because commanders blew more funding at fiscal year end just so could justify the funding for the following year. On USELESS Bull often overstocking items they DO not need (expendable supplies) that have expiration dates on them OR just sit in some warehouse that command has forgotten about due to interim changes of command and NO institutional memory of what has been purchased in the past.
