Rand Paul - "Time to Audit the Pentagon"

Tonight, Senator Rand Paul told a large crowd that it’s time to audit the Pentagon. Well, I couldn’t agree more. But that’s not where it should end. We need to take a look at military spending across the board. In 2011, we spent $711 BILLION on military spending and this doesn’t count all the money we spend bribing foreign dictators to do our bidding. $711 BILLION! That was 19% of the entire 2011 Budget. Could the average American citizen pay all the bills and put food on the table if they spent 19 cents of every dollar they earned on guns and bullets?
