Each day, we hear story after story after story about someone who is suffering in the face of the coronavirus pandemic. The Pentagon’s response? Military fighter jets flyovers across the country.
They’re hoping that if we all see some fancy fighter jets, we’ll forget that for the past two decades, the United States has been spending nearly a TRILLION DOLLARS a year on “security.” Yet as thousands of our loved ones are sickened and die every day, there is nothing bombs and jets can do to help confront a 21st century challenge like COVID-19.
Demand Secretary of Defense Mark Esper immediately stop fighter jet flyovers and redirect every dime planned for these shows to be spent on lifesaving medical equipment and economic relief instead.
