Tell Congress: Bailout People NOT the Pentagon and Weapons Manufacturers!

After approving a $741 billion Pentagon budget, Congress is considering handing the Pentagon an estimated $30 billion in EXTRA funding in the next COVID relief bill, including $24 billion which will go directly to the arms industry. Sign on to our petition to tell Congress: Bailout people NOT the Pentagon and weapons manufacturers!

Dear Congress

While everyday workers are struggling to survive, the Senate is considering giving the Pentagon $30 billion more in funding in the next COVID-19 relief package for fighter jets, helicopters, radars, ships and armored vehicles. We cannot afford to give one more penny to the Pentagon and weapons manufacturers! Instead, we must bail out the 26 million people who have lost their jobs so far, the 9.2 million who have lost their health insurance, and the countless more who will have to choose between paying for rent and groceries.

The next COVID-19 relief package must prioritize funding to address our real threat to peace and security: COVID-19. In the face of a global pandemic, we need to fund healthcare, not the production of weapons that will only exacerbate the worst effects of this ongoing global pandemic.

Working people in America are fed up with a government that prioritizes funding for weapons of war above their well-being.

I implore you to vote NO on any COVID-19 relief bill that includes more money for the Pentagon and weapons manufacturers while everyday workers are suffering.

Sincerely,

    Pentagon budget should be about 50 billion max. That would be enough to defend. The rest is wasted.

    I oppose weapon funding…funds

    needs to handle Covid, homeless

    housing, feeding poor seniors, etc.

    No money leading to prolonging endless wars .
