Trump will receive funding for his border wall between Mexico and the US but it’s the American taxpayers who will flip the bill and not Mexico.
The frivolous spending will add another $400 billion over ten years to the already ballooning debt that will eventually send the American economy into a recession.
The spending measures will also include a well-deserved pay raise for the civilian workers and the brave men and women who serve within the American military.
The 2020 National Defense Authorization Act was part of that spending legislation, which will also establish a U.S. Space Force and reform military privatized housing.
The move ensures that troops will receive a 3.1% pay increase, their largest raise in a decade. Today’s Senate vote sends a message to America’s military families: we are committed to you. We honor your sacrifice We’re going to give you the training, equipment and weapons, and resources you need to do your job well and come home safely.U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee
