Last month, the Government decided to break with a decade-old policy and allow military spending to exceed 1 percent of the gross national product.
The cost of acquiring new planes must be held down to allow Federal spending on domestic programs.
The expenditures are legal under the Federal ethics law that allows only campaign-related spending from such funds.
However, this case does not allow free spending by the unions but limits it somewhat.
It would allow spending, and contributions by individuals, to increase.
Any political system that allows unlimited political spending is crazy.
The bill would allow total spending of nearly $300 billion, if separate appropriations actually provide the money.
The House voted down a measure on April 1 that would have allowed continued spending.
The Democrats, however, put a higher priority on domestic spending and allow less spending for the military.
It would allow spending of up to $3.2 million in the primary and $4 million in the general election.
