politics of fear

I guess this is my platform for ranting if I so choose, so here goes:

Why is it that there is so much pressure on the current US government to not raise the budget "one dime" in order to extend healthcare to dying Americans, but there was little more than a barely audible whisper when the defense budget skyrocketed after 9-11 (and remains high)?

All I can think of is that it's strategic use of a politics of fear, but what I can't figure out is why we are letting them get away with it.
