The federal budget proposed by the President and most Republicans transfers tens of billions of dollars from education, affordable housing, climate protection, medical care, hunger assistance, and social security directly to weapons companies and warmaking.
Already our Pentagon budget is 9 times larger than the Russian military budget. It makes up 60% of the entire discretionary budget. We are funding a trillion dollar nuclear weapons upgrade. But now the Republicans and some Democrats want to take away even more money from the rest of us to fund their wars and stuff the pockets of the military companies who fund their campaigns and give them big jobs when they retire. Such a budget guarantees that more Iraqs, Afghanistans, Libyas, Syrias and Yemens are on the way.
On this day we pay our taxes, we say No Way! It's time to put our tax money into projects that make our country the kind of society we can be proud of. See you at the Upham's Corner Health Center at 4:30 for our 8th annual Tax Day march.
