This week, we have an opportunity to push Congress to rein in Pentagon spending—the House of Representatives is going to vote on The National Defense Authorization Act of 2014 (NDAA), which authorizes massive U.S. military spending.
Join us in supporting amendments that will put a stop to the corporate boondoggles and misguided policies that fuel arms races with China and Russia—and that cost us dearly here at home.
If we don’t act, Congress may give nearly $640 billion to the Pentagon, which would exceed the caps set by sequestration.
Let’s let Congress know that we don’t buy it.
We don’t believe that while education, food stamps, housing, and other social programs are being cut every day, we can afford to spend more money on failed weapons systems (such as the outrageously expensive F-35), more nuclear weapons and troops abroad, and permanent foreign bases.
All year, Wage Peace supporters have been vocal in their opposition to Pentagon waste. This is another opportunity to tell Congress to invest in people, not the Pentagon.
Your representative needs to hear from you today!
