If President Biden cut certain nuclear missile programs, "he could save more than enough money to prepare vaccines for the 50 to 100 viruses most likely to cause the next pandemic," writes @PeterBeinart. https://t.co/qQAReVATRF

@nytopinion @PeterBeinart The US spends as much on the military annually as it spend on nuclear weapons over 3 decades. Cutting is right, but the US only really needs nuclear weapons for defense. Cut the rest.

@nytopinion @PeterBeinart Yes. My friends in the military said that no budget increases were needed – seriously. They said the GOP had increased unnecessary defense funding for years, using 9/11 as an excuse. Domestic, not foreign, terrorists are the problem now!

@nytopinion @djrothkopf @PeterBeinart Thinking about this, moving budget from military spending to pandemic defense spending is not a big shift. Both categories are national defense.

@nytopinion @PeterBeinart The last time a President believed we could have "guns and butter" at the same time, it didn't work out very well. The US cannot have a bloated defense budget with multiple foreign wars having failed to achieve their objectives after 20 years, plus infrastructure and health care
