Defense lobbyists have completely co-opted this country’s budget priorities to hand taxpayer dollar after taxpayer dollar to weapons manufacturers — instead of focusing our resources where they’re needed most.
So while the West Coast burns and renters who lost their jobs during the pandemic rely on a handful of brave lawmakers holding sit-ins on the Capitol steps to protect them from eviction, defense corporations get to sit back as the Democratic-led Senate Armed Services Committee pads the Pentagon budget with an *additional* $37 BILLION.
It’s time for a fundamental reckoning and we need every one of our activists with us while we work furiously, side-by-side with a small, but powerful cohort of lawmakers to stop a rubber-stamp of one of the biggest Pentagon budgets in history.
Because here’s the thing: this increase won’t happen without the House of Representatives in tow. And you can help: add your name and urge your Rep. to cut the Pentagon budget today!
