Department of Everything: ńˇýNon-DefenseńˇŁ Defense Spending
Tom A. Coburn (au)
This report examines five areas of the Pentagon budget that have little to do with national security where taxpayer dollars could be saved and deficits reduced without impacting our national security: (1) Non-Military R&D projects that have little or nothing to do with national defense or medical needs related to military service ($6 billion); (2) Education: The Defense Domestic Dependent Elementary and Secondary Schools (DDESS) that educates children of military families here in the U.S.; the Science, Tech., Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) programs that duplicate the work of the Dept. of Education and local school districts ($10.7 billion); the Dept. of Defense (DOD) Tuition Assistance Program which provides college funding for military members on active duty and duplicates the Dept. of Veterans Affairs (VA) ($4.5 billion); (3) Duplicative and unnecessary alternative energy research by DOD ($700 million); (4) Pentagon-run grocery stores here in the U.S. ($9 billion); (5) Overhead, Support, and Supply Services: Over 300,000 military members performing civilian-type job functions and too many general officers ($37 billion). The report includes recommendations that could save as much as $67.9 billion dollars or more over ten years without cutting any military units. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
