Democrats have been more fiscally conservative than Republicans when it comes to Federal spending.
Why is this?
Perhaps it is the big amygdalas that conservatives have that make them fearful.
Republicans have never met a new defense system it didn't like and ramp up defense spending.
The GOP congress broke an agreement with Obama on spending.
The Ryan plan also increases national defense spending to $554 billion in 2013, an increase of $8 billion over the $546 billion that was agreed to under the Budget Control Act.
If elected, Mitt Romney has already said he will increase defense spending and he will consider Russia the number one threat.
