    That is reasonable.

    Don't agree with cutting in half though.

    •  I bet there's much spending currently done (0+ / 0-)

      through DoD that could and probably should be spread out over other depts (and vice-versa) since much of what DoD spends isn't on military programs per se. E.g. if a highway is built or expanded to connect two regional bases, the costs should be shared between Dod and DoT. Or, if DoD is developing weather forecasting software, it should be developed jointly with the NWS.
