Final Draft Budget Proposal 1938
Seeing as we did very well in 1937 I wish to use to bill to propose we keep going in the same direction. 1937 has been a calm year, but also a year that has shown us we need to be prepared for the future. There are too many incidents happening around the world for us to just sit and wait patiently. Once the time comes we need to be able to act decisively. So I hereby present my budget proposal for 1938:
The area's whereupon I didn't comment can be considered as fine as they are. We needn't change everything.
- Officers: 0
- Diplomacy: 0.25
- Espionage: 1.5
- Research: 31.25 (What's left)
Since we worked on designing new naval and land techniques last year, it is now time to put these designs into production. Last year's Rudolf-Sinclaire 1937 Budget included a heavy focus on the Air force. This was done under the agreement that this year, the army and the navy would get the emphasis. Hence I propose the following division of our industrial capacity:
- Upgrades: 0 IC
- Supplies: 0 IC
- Reinforcements: 0.5 IC
- Consumer Goods: 39.36 IC (whatever gives us 0 dissent)
This leaves us with an average of about 120 IC to spend on anything else (correct me if Im wrong) :
- Any buildings and constructions: 40 IC
- Navy: 35 IC
- Army: 35 IC
- Air Force: 10 IC (in order to finish up the queue)
I shall not do any suggestions on what every department should construct, for it is the appropriate minister who can decide on these matters most effectively.
With this plan we can continue to advance America into a modern state with the equally modern capabilities to defend its interests around the globe. I also would like to thank my fellow senators for their confidence in my bill. Now it's up to the ministers to spend our money wisely.
