Tell Speaker Pelosi: Reject Pentagon giveaways in COVID-19 relief

Buried in the 177-page GOP COVID-19 relief proposal are BILLIONS of dollars for a weapons of war wish list: fighter jets, helicopters, and missile defense systems.

That’s right Senate Republicans are ready to hand out $30 BILLION for Pentagon pet projects completely unrelated to COVID-19 — while they’re nickel and diming families who desperately need protections and benefits to put food on their tables and keep roofs over their heads.

House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi has the power to reject this absurd proposal and stop it entering the final bill — nothing proposed can become law without House approval. We've been here before: in April, we spoke out against pandemic profiteering in the COVID relief bills and won - let’s do it again.

Sign now to tell Leader Pelosi: NO COVID-19 relief money for weapons of war!

To Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi:

Rebuilding our futures lies in what we choose to support and resource right now. The latest Senate COVID-19 relief bill does little to support struggling families and communities. But it does include funding for weapons of war: fighter jets, helicopters, and missile defense systems.

It’s appalling that our already overfilled warmaking budget could receive yet another unnecessary influx of cash under the guise of pandemic relief. I support and urge you to soundly reject this proposal.
