Hold the Pentagon Accountable for COVID Corruption

The Pentagon has funneled almost $700 million of COVID-19 relief funds intended to build up *medical equipment supplies* to massive defense contractors for things like jet engine parts and body armor. This is corruption, pure and simple — and all of us ARE already paying the price of the Pentagon’s waste.

These funds could’ve shored up the severe shortage of N95 masks at numerous U.S. hospitals. Or supported desperately needed vaccine distribution infrastructure. Instead, the funds were funneled “to defense contractors and used to make things such as jet engine parts, body armor, and dress uniforms.”

There is only one solution: the Pentagon needs to pay this money back — seems impossible, but anger in Congress is mounting and we can build on the energy. We just might be able to force them to do it, if we get LOUD and act FAST.

Urge your member of Congress to demand that the Pentagon pay back the nearly 1 billion dollars in COVID funding it spent on jet parts and body armor.

To members of the U.S. House of Representatives:

We are outraged by reports in the Washington Post that the Pentagon reallocated the vast majority of one billion dollars of CARES Act funding for medical supplies towards defense needs like jet engine parts and body armor. This is corruption pure and simple — and particularly when so many families across the country are struggling to make ends meet, it is shameful.

People across the country have had to make incredible sacrifices this year, and for far too many — 200,000 as of September 22 — simply too much has been taken. 

Taxpayer dollars should be directed where they are most needed. I urge you to require the Pentagon give the money back and ensure that these funds are spent on the COVID relief for which it was originally intended under the CARES Act.
