Chart of the Day: The Founders on Defense Spending

As you can see from the chart prepared by the Heritage Organization, modern era defense spending is a much smaller part of the federal budget than it has been historically.

Huge growth in social program spending has driven up the federal deficit, not defense spending.

There is much more over at The Foundry. Check them out!
