Ask your Congress Member to sign a letter to President Obama and Congressional leaders calling for reevaluation of military spending
From US Labor Against the War
Congressmember Barney Frank (D-MA) has initiated a "Dear Colleague" letter cosigned by five other members of the House* seeking support for a letter to the president and leaders of the House and Senate that calls for a "comprehensive reevaluation of U.S. worldwide military commitments."
It is clear to most people that we will not have the resources we need to create jobs, fund healthcare and education, protect Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid - and address all the other urgent social needs we have - without ending the wars and redirecting funds from the bloated and wasteful Pentagon budget to meet our domestic priorities.
Please take a moment to ask your own member of Congress to sign onto this letter. We've made it very easy. You can send the letter we've drafted or modify it to reflect your own views.
Help send the message that we need a new set of priorities. One place to start is by putting the Pentagon on a diet so that our social safety net can be repaired and our cities and states have resources to meet the needs of the people.
Thanks again for all you do for peace and justice.
