Moratorium

Congress has just passed a military spending bill for the next fiscal year of $700+ billion. I propose a moratorium on military spending on all wars, present and future, of one year’s duration so that the damage in Houston, Florida, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands caused by recent hurricanes can be repaired using those funds and returned military personnel. After one year if repairs are complete, Congress must then re-authorize all current and future wars on a case by case basis.
