Trump's military parade in Washington may cost $92 million - NBC News

Quote:
White House budget director Mick Mulvaney said in February the cost might be $10 million to $30 million

The estimated cost of the military parade requested by President Donald Trump has risen again, this time to as much as $92 million, according to a defense official.

The cost of the parade, scheduled for Nov. 10 in Washington, was initially reported as $12 million, and was based on the cost of the victory parade held in the capital after the 1991 Gulf War, said the officials. The Washington Post estimated the cost of the 1991 victory parade as $8 million.

In February, White House budget director Mick Mulvaney told Congress the price could be $10 million to $30 million.

The defense official told NBC News that the internal estimate of the cost of this fall's parade rose to $25 million after adjusting for more than 25 years of inflation. But that estimate did not take into account expenses borne by other federal agencies and some nonmilitary line items.


Conservatives are such lazy, shiftless grifters.

FAR FAR FAR more than the Mueller investigation as well. I hear they are starting another Hillary emails investigation. I truly had hoped THAT would be what convinced people to DO WHATEVER is necessary to fix this. WHATEVER is necessary.


I like this too, btw


Senator Sanders says he wants to transform the Democrats into a party for workers. But like a scab, he won’t join the union, won’t pay dues, won’t put in the work, but still thinks he’s entitled to union protection. Is that who we want representing workers? - Jason Haddix

From my experience, most military members don't like doing parades because it's time away from their duties, family, friends, or other plans. A parade isn't a one-day event. There's the time it takes to practice, usually during duty hours, which means work/training gets delayed and has to be made up at a later date meaning overtime and that's just for the marchers. If you're having vehicle or other equipment in the parade there the time to prep it to ensure it's clean and functioning. Then there's the date of the actual parade when the participants, transportation for the participants and equipment have to be in place a couple of hours before hand. There's usually no place to sit down so you're standing around and then marching. All in-total you're looking at around four hours or more on parade day and then getting back to your meeting point so you can go back to your car to get home. At that point, you're tired and realize there's not much time left in the day to do anything.

The military has more important things to do than a parade whose only purpose is to boost the sagging ego of a narcissistic sociopath.

But we can afford a 70 billion dollar wall so self-loathing conservative whites can feel superior and good about themselves for a minute.

We can afford Ivy League tuition to house and board offenders, but free community college is socialistandcommunist.

We can afford a billion dollars to tie down immigrant Latino children with restraints, separate infants from their mothers, and summon toddlers to immigration courts.

Detaining immigrant kids is now a billion-dollar industry - LA Times

I heard they're rapists and gang members. :problem:

And we can afford multi billion dollar tax cuts for the elite one percent, which we have been told the elite will re-invest to create more jobs. Of course to help pay for it, the American workers need to suck it up and live on less money because corporate America needs to pay less to workers to be more competitive in the world market. Also that the military service people need to stop being so selfish that they accept pay raises. As far as the 92 million dollar cost of a military parade for 666, I wonder if that includes the cost of the massive street repair necessary since it has been said the streets in Washington are not built to handle military vehicles rolling over them!

Free, well sign me up and thank you for clearing that up. I didnt know it was going to be free. I thought the $500,000,000,000 or so it was going to cost each and every year was going to be paid for by raising taxes. Imagine that secondary education under the left is going to be free.

Education is an investment in your workforce. That's why China and all these other countries pay to send their young people over here for college. They are smart enough to understand that investing in the education of their populate pays off. But instead, you want to spend money bribing companies with our tax money to put factories here, and they demand bigger bribes every year, or they move them. You think it's smart to pit the taxpayers of each state against each other - whoever will pay the most to the corporate CEOs, it's unsustainable.

But let's just remember that glen didn't pay for his kid's college, the government did to a big degree. He just doesn't want OTHER kids to have a government-provided education.

And the model where kids start life with tens of thousands of dollars in debt is also unsustainable. Now, glen has NO proposals on how to fix this, he just hates the idea of free college.

And yes, glen, we know that everything is paid for with tax dollars. But I'd rather invest those dollars in education than give them away to the already rich.

It doesn't cost 500 billion Glen. Get your facts right.

Private colleges would continue be just that.

Probably just hates the idea of college at all. Or ANY form of education that actually, you know, teaches things, let alone HOW to learn - harder to indoctrinate people into conservative conformity and propaganda, that way.

Conservatives so often do.

Don’t even try. Nothing is free including the teat your daughter went to college on. It is called paid for by taxes. State public 4 year and 2 year colleges could most certainly be paid for by the state with tax dollars. Eliminating a couple of weapons systems the Pentagon doesn’t even want would be a great start. YOU are the one bleating about “free”. Everyone else with a modicum of understanding knows how it would be paid for.

As usual glen is completely unclear on the concept of the OP.

Just forget it glen...even something as basic as this is just too deep for you.

And now the parade is cancelled because it costs too much and, of course, Trump is blaming D.C. for the high price tag.

Glen + free college = noise.

Sometimes it's worth the effort attempting to reduce noise. Sometimes it isn't.

The blogger is claiming 60 billion over 10 years, 6 billion a year. We currently have 20 million college students. That works out to $300 per student.
