That's deceptive, Bob. And I'm sure you know it. It's a larger percentage of a smaller number.It's not deceptive. It's what part of government spending went for the DoD. Since the percentage went down it means other parts of government grew to take a larger slice of the pie. And back when JFK was elected the Defense Department took up 55% of all federal spending (larger slice of a smaller pie, total expenditures being only $97 billion or $770 billion in today's dollars).DB2
