Tell Congress No $54 Billion for War!

To Congress,

We urge you to oppose a budget that increases military spending. The massive increases in Pentagon spending being proposed would come at the expense of foreign aid, the Environmental Protection Agency, the US State Department, and more. We need schools, health care, green jobs, and diplomacy, not more tanks, warships, and nuclear weapons!

Sincerely,

    If Republicans want wars they need to raise taxes on the oligarchs to pay for them. They reap the benefits.

    I’m sick of this nation wasting precious resources and lives on ENDLESS WARS—-all at the expense of cuts to the programs that truly benefit a majority of Americans, rather than military contractors and wealthy investors. This military spending is UNDERMINING OUR SECURITY RATHER THAN ENHANCING IT. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!

    There are plenty of illegitimate reasons for these wars, but of course the media are not talking about any of that. Most obviously, corporations and elites – war profiteers – are benefiting.

    We need to reduce our Pentagon by 200 billion, invest back into

    Country. We have no high speed rail, but Europe, Japan, China do.

    We need to close the over 1K foreign military bases.

    “Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. . . This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron.” —Dwight D. Eisenhower

    Lincoln and Roosevelt both raised taxes to help defray the costs of the wars they were involved in. Why do we continue to wage war on borrowed money and on the backs f the less fortunate among us?
