Here is a chart of US military spending compared to the next 11 countries in the world. It is a frequent talking point of the right that Obama has somehow gutted our military. That he has weakened it by shifting defense spending away from defense. That our military doesn’t have the planes, helicopters, tanks, ships, guns, and bombs that it needs.
This chart provides pesky facts to show once again that the right is hysterical, is lying, and is trying to scare people into voting Republican because they have nothing else with which to try to get people’s votes.
