Staggering Ignorance From Bill Maher: 'We Spend 42% of Our Total Budget on Defense'
October 27, 2012
BILL MAHER, HOST: We have tens of thousands of troops in Italy, Germany, Japan, Korea, places where wars have not occurred for decades. And we spend I think something like 42 percent of our total budget on defense, right, and I don’t know if that includes or Homeland Security.
CONGRESSMAN BARNEY FRANK (D-MASSACHUSETTS): Well, it doesn’t include Homeland Security. It includes the nukes.
