$700 billion?

Our country's military budget – more than $700 billion – is roughly the size of the next seven largest military budgets around the world. Combined.

Want to know what we spend all that money on?

I do, too.

I'm calling for a continuing audit of the Pentagon to make sure any Department of Defense spending is fully transparent to taxpayers.

Add your name to demand accountability from the Department of Defense!

Last fall, after years of stonewalling, the Department of Defense underwent its first-ever full audit. The results were deeply troubling: massive accounting failures and billions of dollars unaccounted for. Really, it left us with more questions than answers.

But Donald Trump wants to pour even more untraceable tax dollars into the Pentagon. His new budget slashes funding for critical programs from Medicaid to libraries.

So, it's more important than ever that we shine a light on defense spending and continue to demand clear accounting for our tax dollars.
