The White House says it will release President Biden’s topline spending request for fiscal year 2022 soon. Some experts expect defense spending to stay flat in coming years.

  • Dov Zakheim, former Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller) for the Defense Department, said it is “not clear” to him or his colleague Elaine McCusker that the U.S. is spending more than China, our top competitor, because of their lack of transparency and major differences.
  • Zakheim said to determine how much to spend on defense each year, the United States should evaluate commitments around the world, force level requirements, benefits for troops and research and development.
  • The question comes down to deciding what the defense of our country, allies and interests is worth, Zakheim argued.
