We had this argument over this last week, and i've finally been able to find my source.

The government spent $258,069,000,000.00 in 1999 and $279,110,000,000.00 in 2000 on the military according to congressman Christopher Cox who published this report. This amount represents 13% of all national expenditures, behind only social spending at 56% and interest on the national debt at 17%.
I look up where I thought I saw my information, but it's clearly not 4%.

My defense: I mis-remembered!
