Biden’s DOD budget plan draws transpartisan opposition

In another indication that the Washington establishment has firm control of the Biden administration’s foreign policy thinking, the White House reportedly plans to request $715 billion for the Pentagon for fiscal year 2022, $11 billion more than what Congress approved for this year.

“Biden has largely been expected to request a flat budget,” Politico reports, but “[t]he $715 billion level would mark a roughly 1.5 percent increase in defense spending from the current year’s level, making it effectively an inflation-adjusted budget boost.”

The news drew wide condemnation from all sides of the ideological spectrum.
