In July 2020, 93 Congress Members voted to cut military spending by 10%. Did they mean it?
If Republicans oppose the upcoming military spending bill (for their own bizarre reasons), it would take only five of those 93 insisting on reduced spending to halt or reshape the bill. Imagine what a credible public commitment by 93 of them right now could do!
Right now there are five cosponsors of a non-binding resolution (H.Res.476) that proposes to move $350 billion out of the Pentagon's budget (roughly a 50% reduction to that portion of military spending). But finding five willing to commit to voting No unless the reduction is at least 10% is a whole different question from adding sponsors to a resolution that's not likely to be voted on.
