Obama’s defense budget larger than any other president’s since World War II

The vast majority of people in the USA, including Congressmen and analysts, have little idea just how large the Pentagon’s defense budget increases have been under President Obama.

Except for George W. Bush’s presidency, Obama’s military-budget request is larger than any other president’s defense budget since the death of Franklin Roosevelt in April 1945.

If one subtracted a sum of $52 billion mandated by the Budget Control Act from the $612 billion defense budget Obama requested for 2014, they would see that the Pentagon spends billions of dollars above what the US spent during the Cold War, Vietnam and Korean wars.

Every year the Pentagon publishes the Green Book or “National Defense Budget Estimates”, which many believe to be the “bible” of defense budget analysts.

The graphs of the Green book shows that the USA is now near a post-World War II low which is, according to many defense-spending boosters, is a dangerous trend that needs to be reversed. But all the data collected for the Green book, while technically accurate, are misused, as the numbers in it represent not money actually spent, but the sum of annual Pentagon spending as part of the total American economy.
