Having spent a considerable amount of my early adult life in the military when it was not so popular as it is now, I've always been acutely aware of complaints about how much it costs to fund it. Well, I came across some numbers that gave me great relief: the US spends more money on welfare now than on the military, and spending on welfare is increasing rapidly while the opposite is happening with military spending.

I am so relieved.

hmmm.... That gave me an idea. Let's make prior military service a prerequisite to be eligible for welfare. Anyone who says "I can't find a good job" can be introduced to my Uncle Sam!
