Add up the money that all the other countries in the world spend on their military equals how much money we spend on our military. Note these numbers are from 2008, we just increased our military budget again this year. Balancing our budget would be easy if people demanded we spend less on our "defense" budget. Also we need to realize that this is no longer considered "defense", more like "offense", to keep USA #1 at all costs. This also explains why other countries can afford free health care.
