USA – Senate Dems’ $3.5T budget proposes small increases to defense spending (Defense News)

Senate Democrats on Monday unveiled a $3.5 trillion budget blueprint that proposes limited increases for defense budgets through 2031. While non-binding, the numbers are politically symbolic, and it’s unclear whether the roughly flat top-lines for national defense will repel centrist Democrats or not, especially given the other Democratic priorities in the bill. Party leaders will need all 50 of their members to stay unified to pass the budget blueprint, focused on expanding America’s social safety net, without any Republican votes.
