この歳出法による支出は、追加補正予算ということなのですか? 追加で数千億って凄いですな。われらがJSDFはヘリ1機買うのにヒーヒー言ってるのに。

でも、アメリカの研究開発の結果をほとんどタダで利用している我々もその恩恵に預かっているとも言えますが。超兵器を作っては止め作っては止めしてくれているおかげで、ハズレ引かなくて済みますので。

いや、これは毎年の国防予算です。
この後、上院本会議に歳出法案を送付して、可決か否決かが決まります。

いつだったか「世界の艦船」で書いてましたけれど、アメリカでは DoD からの要求を基にして大統領が「予算教書」をまとめて議会に出すのですが、それはあくまで叩き台。議会はその予算教書を基にして個別の案件ごとに審議した上で、「FY ○○国防歳出法」を作るのです。

しかもこれを上下両院が別々にやるので、ときには両者で内容が食い違い、後ですり合わせが必要になることも。

戦時補正予算の方は別枠で、1,700 億ドルぐらいですね。これも最近ではいきなり満額では出なくて、半年分ぐらいずつ、折衝しながら出してもらっている状況ですが。
