The U.S. Navy is pushing ahead with building a Trump-initiated, completely unnecessary new ship-based nuke.
It’s a nuke *four* previous administrations, starting with Pres. George H.W. Bush, were happy to keep locked away in storage. Pres. Obama actually retired this nuclear weapon entirely — because we ALREADY have thousands of nukes deployed on submarines, fighter jets, and heavy bombers.
Experts say not only is this a colossal waste of money that accelerates a global nuclear arms race, it also sets the stage for a catastrophe by putting nukes on ships alongside non-nuke missiles.
Congress can — and must — stop this nuke in its tracks. Representative Joe Courtney, chair of the House Armed Services Seapower Subcommittee, and Senator Chris Van Hollen agree. That’s why they’ve introduced a bill to cut off funding before this disaster-in-waiting goes any further.
Can you add your name to our note urging your members of Congress to join them?
