Congressional leadership is considering including tens of BILLIONS of dollars for the Pentagon in the upcoming jobs and infrastructure bills.
It’s outrageous. We have a crucial opportunity to fix our nation's broken budget priorities and finally invest in our PEOPLE — and throwing more money at the Pentagon does the exact opposite.Our communities can’t be deprioritized behind Pentagon and defense contractor greed.
Representatives Barbara Lee, Mark Pocan, and Cori Bush are circulating a letter for their colleagues in the House urging Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Schumer keep Pentagon funding out of a “Build Back Better” agenda. We need your support to get so many members of Congress to join them that we can't be ignored.
This letter closes on June 30, so please act fast!
